I have gardened most of my life. But this winter, for the very first time, I'm not looking forward to spring. The sheer size of my permacultured garden is going to demand more than I feel capable of giving. Obviously, in developing the half-acre over the past decade, I thought the factor of age would never apply to me. As a possible remedy, I'm now seeking a partner in the enterprise. The location has everything going for it, being in close proximity to the Grand Mesa and the Colorado National Monument, squat in the center of one of the most productive fruit-growing regions of the world. The ideal place to grow the dream of producing the organic produce which will be in ever-higher demand as the world comes to its senses. Anyway, that's been my dream. If it's yours as well, and you're up for the move to the land of the true-blue Colorado sky, I'd love to hear from you.

I realize I’m seeing this late but if you need help this following spring I’m super interested. I’m a student at Colorado Mesa University and I want to go into sustainable agriculture after graduation. I’m almost finished with the environmental science program. Hope the farm is doing well!

What a lovely garden, house, and surroundings. Thanks for posting the pictures. I’d love to help out when I’m in the area. I visited two Permaculture sites in Wester Colorado 3 years ago last time I was in the Southwest. I’m planning to take my small bus there again as soon as we get a handle on the corona virus situation. Please give us a update.

This sounds awesome. Id love to come and help. My son is remote schooling this year and maybe we will have freedom to come help out. I took on a job this winter and it goes until may. Then we have all summer to do whatever we want!
