I Am interested in the way Permaculture can help create a Bi Dynamic Relationship along side the Grand Rockies in Norther Colorado.

Specifically located East of the Rockies with Wyoming to the North.

~Climate zones 4, 5, 6~

Article sharing and video suggestions is appreciated

I am not quite sure what you are looking for Stephanie, but here are some good resources to use for learning about permaculture:
Open Permaculture
Rich Soil
Deep Green Permaculture
United Diversity Library
Bill Mollison Lecture Series


More general educational resources:
Internet Archive
Open Library
Project Gutenberg

And there are tons of stuff on YouTube, too.

Northern CO certainly has more permie minded folks than Southern CO. There are a few permaculture groups in Boulder, Ward and even into Denver.
We also have members here from Walensburg, CO all the way up through WY.

my general suggestions are to shade the soil when/wherever possible.
rock mulch seems to do better than woodchip mulch as it relates to keep moisture in the ground (in my area at least)


i also wish there were more discussion on the high altitude arid lands, as we have some unique challenges, specifically water, imo.

What are you looking for exactly? I'm in south eastern Wyoming and I'm a permie girl.

I'm near Denver and this really inspired me.
It's not necessarily on the Eastern Slope though.



There are a few more videos on the Colorado Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute and Jerome Osentowski that you could follow from this link.

I'm in Cheyenne. Would any of you be so kind as to post links to any of the permie groups around the area?

If there are any I'm unaware of it. However, now there are 3 of us here on Permies. Perhaps we should start our own group. Can wine be involved?

LoL, wine can absolutely be involved. Yes, let's start a group. Wind Warrior Permaculture. Sponsored by the fruit of the vine.

Seriously, let's set something up. Feel free to PM and I'll send my email address.
