I live in Creston, nc. [ Ashe county] I am in year two of terrace building [ with trackhoe] and food production. My background in construction helps some but I am reduced to trail and error designing plant guild configuration in my specific microclimate. Lots of localized rainfall and massive rock outcroppings make this a somewhat unique local. Looking for local contacts.
Steve, I'm not very "local" anymore although I used to live in Todd. I'm about 90 minutes away now, but try to get to Boone about once a month to grocery shop, and then on up 194 towards W. Jefferson to visit an old friend. Getting there in the winter months is always weather-dependent, but I'd be glad to come by and talk with you. Send me a private message with a phone number, or email address?
