Hello all,

I am in Palm Springs, California. I have a beautiful backyard and front yard that I would like to convert into permaculture design. I just started learning about Permaculture , if anyone is willing to join me in developing this project that will be awesome. I feel alone in the desert as most of the projects are not in desert areas. Please give me ideas, contacts and possible oppotunities.

are you working with existing landscape or starting? id consider catching as much rain in the yard and slowing it from leaving. whatever that looks like in your situation. different catchment areas maybe. desert trees for shade also. thorn-less if you prefer

I'm currently working on greening six acres in 29Palms CA. End goal is a silvo-pasture system of Mojave native edibles being utilized by a few dairy goats, chickens, muscovy ducks, rabbits, and doves. Some of the plants i'm growing are Mesquite, palo verde, jojoba, fig, pomergrante, opuntia, agave, olive, and native grasses.

Hi, I know this post was a year ago, but I’m wondering if you’ve found any community for permaculture here in the desert? I would definitely be interested, just recently learned about permablitz and am super jazzed about the idea!

I am greening the high desert outside of Barstow, California at 2200 feet. I took the PDC last year and am applying many perm methods to my 10 acres in the Mojave Desert. After 23 years living here using organic methods, I have created a little oasis that is attracting a lot of birds. I grow veges and fruit trees, raise chickens, cats and bees.
