Hello, I am very new to this. I have purchased a 1/2 acre of land in Timberon, New Mexico and want to apply permaculture principles in designing a food forest. My sister and I will be taking classes in March after which we will head out to New Mexico to see what's what. We plan on building a super adobe dwelling and I just want to know if anyone else has done anyn building up there. We are about 7100 ft above sea level. There is water on the property and we intend to install composting toilets to manage our black water, while using our gray water for our garden. We have to clear our little plot before we can do anything and if anyone has any advice, I am open.
