(question for Toby and anyone else who has ideas) Howdy, I live at 6500 feet just outside Basin, Mt. We are off grid, have minimum water (but enough) and are settled on a south facing slope. (great sun) We have 6 acres but focusing on 2-3 right now. We have Two young children, some goats and chickens, Bees, a young forest garden and working on zone 1. What is the best resource (book,movies,web sites,etc) for growing in this climate? Can You share some of your experiences in this climate and/or area? I have read the first edition of Gaias Garden(it was superb and I would love to own one), Mollisons books, Fukuokas' forest gardening, sepp holzer's Permaculture. What are your thoughts small ponds in this area, we only get 12-15 inches of precipitation a year but I dream of having one and am trying to figure out if I can pull it off. Our soil is poor (decomposed granite) and we do not have much catchment area. Lastly I am interested in any continuing education that you may be doing in Montana, is there anything you have in the works. My better half and I have our Permaculture Design Certificates and we cannot stop as we are addicts of this lifestyle. We NEED more. Thanks for your work, Dave
