In Durango, CO. We are building a silvopasture based farm scale permaculture farm. Just finished some large earthworks with 7+ acres of ponds.

What a large blank canvas to start with. You're smart to get your water situation taken care of first. Is the irrigation water that you mentioned in addition to the spring water that you featured? It looks like water cress could be a year-round crop with the right set-up.
I am interested to see your progress as you go through the upcoming growing season.

Yeah, it is a big slate. Its daunting at times, but I use systematic approach, where water and infrastructure are placed before trees and animals go in.
Thanks for interest, and I can video different aspects if you have topics you want me to focus on. I will start doing weekly updates on the farm, since a lot is going on.
