i was asking about a homestead or farmstead in north central nevada.
i was mainly interested based on the price of land (640 acres for $70k) and was kind of wondering out loud what was possible.
it seemed like there werent many permaculture people in north nevada (might be because there arent many people in n nevada in general)
it appears as if there is water within 200 ft of the surface and i would imagine that you could damn up a bunch of water one 1 square mile.
it looks like anyone looking to relocate to north nevada would have to look outside of the area for examples of dryland design. once you had it figured out, or close, i think it would pave the way for a larger group of people to relocate, which imo would make it easier to do.
