Hello there!

I'd like to introduce myself - I study and practice permaculture as a hobby and inevitably have found my way here. I heard about permies.com probably a year and a half ago, but beyond skimming and lurking a few times just didn't get around to joining.

Well that has changed! I have recently relocated to a city called Bullhead City in the state of Arizona, nestled neatly into probably the warmest place I have ever been before - the Mohave Valley.

I am looking to bridge the gap from self educated hobbyist to practicing consultant - and hopefully bring food into a 'food desert' in an intelligent and sustainable manner, as well as network with others in the area/who have worked in climate like this before.

Thank you for having me. I'm always grateful for useful sources of information and the ability to network around a meaningful passion, and I hope to contribute to the community by writing about my projects and including enough information and step-by-step to help others adopt what I hope to show them are fruitful, functional, frugal, and sustainable approaches to what is otherwise understood as a dead and extreme environment.

- Graham Elliott

Howdy Graham, welcome to permies!
I used to travel down to Pheonix every year for a winter vacation and went through Bullhead City once. I thought it was a great place.
I am looking forward to hearing more from you and your projects!
