Thanks for the post Devin. It gives me a good sense of what the place looks like, definitely looking forward to it.

Hi all, I'm looking forward to joining you all for the ATC.
I will be driving from Colorado, 1100 miles over two days. I'll be arriving sometime on June 29th so that I'll be there for the June 30th tour prior to the ATC.
I plan on sleeping in my Silverado which has a topper on it, no trailer, no camper shell, so it's just the truck. I was wondering if there is a parking space for me at the base camp. It would be nice in that you say that you have wifi, and easy access to toilet, shower, and places to charge electronics.

My honey-do list prior to the first snow this coming winter has two, maybe three rockets stoves( big fan of Peter Van Den Berg), water catchment, and a walipini (underground greenhouse) on it. So those items have my vote for things to explore in the ATC if possible.

This will be fun, checking out your project is definitely on the bucket list, much love and blessings, Tony

Hi Heather, I look forward to checking out your site. For comparison, we are a little colder and drier than Sante Fe.
My wife lived in Albuquerque, and we almost got jobs there back about 6 years. It's a great area enjoy, and thanks.

Hi Heather, thanks for your rely. I will take to heart and utilize your info.
I love Dandelions and purslane, so I will take another run at them.

When I have more time, I'm going to research your past posts. You definitely look like
you know what you're doing. Many thanks

Hi, what's the best way to propagate the purslane, Stinging nettles, and dandelion? By seed? The nettles are definitely sending their seed out at this time.
Last year I broadcasted quite a few dandelion seeds, but none of them took by themselves, do I need to start them then transplant? I am in a harsher environment.
High 8000') and dry.
Thanks

Hi Heather thanks for your post. I am in an arid area and we also have a lot of prickly pear. I think you are correct that I'll need to water plants the first year get them started.
I've gotten goji bushes started this way. I'm still finishing the building of our house, and will be able to start giving some serious time to this project next spring.
We had above average rain this year so far. I'm going to be busy collecting piƱon this fall, the trees are loaded.

Sergei, only one that I'm sure of is the thistle. I may have some type of amaranth, plantain, and variation of lamb's quarters, and one that tastes like it's from the mustard family (which a friend had me try). I am familiar with most of these plants from Connecticut where I was raised. But all the ones here look different. I guess I need to get a copy of your book to help me. Would like to get a signed copy if possible. : )
Thanks for sharing this great info.

Sergei, have you integrated your wild foraging into any permaculture design or are you just wild harvesting?
I'm on 5 acres and have started to identify natives but they are limited. Have you introduced/seeded plants into an area?
If so, which ones would you recommend as I am at 8000' in CO. Thanks

Hi Sergei, thanks for the Dandelion info. More grist for the mill is greatly appreciated.
