I plan to buy at least 5 acres there next spring. I figure if the perm experts can green the desert then I can green up the land there, anyways I've been there and it's not that bad. LOTS of sunshine! Anyone want to join me? Heres my plan: 1) Buy land with good southern exposure, and hopefully a well. 2) Camp on land to get a feel for where things should grow. 3) Select building sites, pond site, cistern site, greenhouse....etc. 4) Build outdoor kitchen, privy, and solar shower. 5) Build cistern and plan water systems. 6) Dig pond, terraces, foundations, and cold cellar. 7) Plant pastures, first trees (foundation plantings for living fences and windbreaks) Build greenhouses, barn, chicken tractor, coops, paddocks... 9) Build underground dome home and solar panels. Obviously I could use some help anyone interested?
