I would so much love to be part of the Missoula lab but I studied the desert ways and plants, living here so long. And I worry about the cold winters too. What about a sister lab in the Southwest, different challenges but nice weather in spring and fall,hot summers, winters 20F at night, 40F in day. I was given 2 and 1/2 acres for permaculture with well. Write or call if interested. Want to learn more the Indians way of healthy living, close to nature, desert adabted foods and herbs and medicine. I am an acupuncturist and dream of a natural place for sick people to heal themselves.spiritually, emotionally, nutritiously. Pray for the right people to come together for this.
