Hi to all,                                                                                              September 24, 2010

Just want to get the word out that I have two properties and not enough hands and hours in the day.  I have a 10 acre property about 1 hour 15 minutes West of Odessa-Midland (they have a super farmer's market there)  and another 22 acre property in Presidio (No country for Old men) Texas.  I am chiefly trying to get tough, desert-friendly forage plants on these properties and contain them (more or less) with a double living fence of Mesquite trees.

Water catchment, Earthships, Composting toilets and solar sterilizers, borrowing of Zone 8 African and Australian Acacias, raising small but healthy populations of semi-exotic deer and sheep are the main goals. Lots of room for somebody with good ideas.  Would like to develop a small team of folks and help them build some equity so that they can offshoot their own projects and be my good ecologically-responsible neighbors....My mind is wide open for anybody looking for land. I might even trade that 10 acre property for some serious (yes serious) labor on my larger gotta love the desert though..I think its great.....
Thanks for looking....Mike L.

Mike -

I live in El Paso, and would be interested in talking with you, if you are still looking for labor.
