Hello Jeremy,

I don't know if you are still looking for some Permies in your area. I am familiar with the people in the greater Albuquerque area if your interested. I believe I also had a post listing them:

The 5th post down the page. I believe Paul Gutches is in your area.

I am near Ilfeld, NM (south end of the Sangre's) adjacent to the Pecos River. So we aren't close neighbors, but close enough to have similar conditions...

The last few years for us have been about house building. I am just starting to build earthworks and plant the property. I am also interested in sharing notes, seeds, etc.

Alan
