Wyoming & Colo: Zones 2 to 5,
Urban and Forest gardening !
Miles was born into a ranching family. His Mom and Dad moved to the big city so he has lived in both worlds. Miles is married with two college aged children. He has been gardening all of his life , in Colorado and Wyoming. A Wyoming Master Gardener and Permaculture newbie. Miles loves hiking, camping and fishing in the Rockies. He and his family live on a small suburban lot outside of Denver and own a ten acre forested lot in Wyoming that is slowly being planted with food crops.

Any of you folks down that way heard about this? I follow several of the youtube homesteaders down there and it sounds like the county is about to change the rules around their freedom to do alternative living systems. Please sign their petition .  HERE

I have a bed under my hazelnut trees that I have never done anything with ,except cover with about a foot of tree leaves each fall. They produce loads of berries , every year, no thinning, no work! It has been there for at least 14 years. I don't know if they thin themselves somehow but I have never seen any yellowing, or die out of any kind. The bed is about 20 ft X 20 ft, I have added a rhubarb, garlic chives, and some comfrey to the mix , just for fun.

Howdy Melonie, I come from a long line of South Dakota Ranchers and farmers. Yep Big ag dominates but if you get a bit closer to "town" you might find a few more kindred souls. Maybe Rapid City area? You might check out the County extension agents in what ever area you are looking, for answers on wells. I remember my Grandpa's ranch had a well out by the barn that was used for drinking water and a well in the pasture that was a hot spring well, smelled like sulfer.
