We live in an amazing small mountain town surrounded by trails, high peaks, rafting, climbing, fishing biking etc. We are a permaculture teacher and designer and his farm-to-school lady who have a small house on our in-town property. We are working to renovate the house but need help as we are both so busy. Looking to trade rent in exchange for labor on the renovations as well as plugging into the landscape here. We have numerous fruit trees, berries, medicinal, and annual gardens planted on site. They need attention, watering, pest control and weeding as they are in their establishment phase. This is a great town. Bring your bike and your good energy and experience life at 7000'.
My company is Round River Design. Write to me if interested - experience in old home renovation, operation and care of power tools, and plant systems desired.

Hi Mike, Where exactly are you in Colorado? I am from Kayenta, AZ, a small town on the Navajo Reservation just 2 hours away from the 4 corners border. I am an aspiring student of permaculture and found your forum very interesting. I've just started a small permaculture design with a small hugelkulture and a plot of land. Im starting from scratch and have been looking for ideas and tips on permies. I am very interested in what you're offering. I have some experience with renovating and I know how to operate various power tools. I love to learn more about permaculture and living a more sustainable lifestyle so that one day I can bring back that knowledge to my people here and start building a foundation for the community. It's very difficult to access organic food in my town because the closest place to get healthy food is 2 hours or more away in a town that sells it. The only places to eat are fast food joints, gas stations, and a grocery store that doesn't offer any organic ingredients whatsoever. The problems I see in my community all fall back to the food we're consuming. I've been constantly looking for a program or a teacher of permaculture nearby that can help me in what I am trying to accomplish. I hope to hear from you soon and get more information about your company.

if you think brussel sprouts are yummy, you should try any other food. And this tiny ad:
