Howdy folks, hope I get to learn from a bunch of you. Having recently purchased a property on the west slope of Colorado, I am super excited to see what ideas I can come up with to regenerate my farm, and learn while giving some insight to my experience. Happy new year.

Howdy Jorge, welcome to permies!

What kinds of things are you planning on doing?  How big is your property? Do you have water?

Miles, my property is 34 acres roughly, with about 30 of them being non irrigated sage brush hillside. Moved to the westslope from the denver area in spring of 2017. Have lots of projects in the works. This wk I am digging a pond for controlling irrigation water, I will be installing a greenhouse later this spring. This summer will be my first yr in trying my hand at industrial hemp. Hope to learn from people who have had experience in small scale farming.
