Hello everyone!
My name is Russ. My wife (Wendy) and I just purchased a 50 acre ranch up here near Roy, NM! We plan on rehabbing the land using permaculture tactics that we learned from geoff lawton's coarse.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to talking to you fine people about projects and theories. Hopefully, my wife and I didn't bite off more than we can chew on this one. Environment is hostile. It is part of the country that got hit by the dust bowl during the 1900s.

Thanks for reading!

Russ

How exciting! New Mexico is a challenging region for sure.

My first bit of advice is to obtain the book Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands Volume 2 by Brad Lancaster. http://www.harvestingrainwater.com/ lots of free info on the website

Quivira Coalition is also a useful resource for your region: http://www.quiviracoalition.org/

Thanks Tyler!

Actually, I already have it. Marked the hell out of it with notes. I also have Bill Mollison's book as well as Geoff Lawton's course on DVD. Planning on picking up Brad's other two books as well. The first one blew me away. In fact, whenever I learn something new in Permaculture, I always get really excited then followed with a facepalm because it makes such sense I wonder why I never noticed it (whatever it is Im learning at the time) before.

Thanks,
Russ
