Hello,

My wife and I along with another family are starting our off-grid homestead on 80 acres in the plains of Northeast Colorado. Anyone in the area?

Howdy Bryan, Welcome to permies. I am in South Denver area and have land up in Wyoming. 80 acres will be awesome to have. What are your plans for the place?

Hi, my wife grew up in Denver. We're planning on a slowly growing permaculture garden and food forest with hugelkulture beds. We'll have lots of wild flowers and berry bushes for the wildlife. And eventually pastures for some larger animals like donkeys and goats.

I have family around Platteville that are doing something similar with 20 acres.  They are trying to get trees established on old grazing land, which does not seem to be easy in their climate.

Oh cool! We're planting trees next week.
