Wow Sam thank you for your post on permies and details about your plans. i live in apple valley ca and this is some of the first permaculture ive come across so close to home. you dont step outside in the high desert everyday and see permaculture designed into the landscape. i hope to see more of your progress and would benefit from your knowledge. Im in my early 20s so im getting all the information i can from the people who have been doing the work for years. thank you. look forward to hearing back.
