Welcome Darrell Frey to our blog! I look forward to reading your book about the Bioshelter Market Garden!
Will it work in Colorado Springs at 6500 feet?

I looked up the one in Basalt, CO. That looks like it is exactly what I wanted! Thanks so much for the link! It is a bit of a drive, but not that far by Colorado standards. And they are at 7200 MSL. We are at 6500 MSL so not too much difference. Thanks for the link!

If not, if you're drier, you might need to look to drier areas in other western states for examples: http://www.sonoranpermaculture.org/

Thanks Kelly. I know Becky. She has been out to my place before.
I would like to find a permaculture / food forest in this local area so I can see how it's done, but haven't found anything yet.

I have been trying to get things to grow here but I must be doing something wrong. I live in 80919, it is pretty dry. We have been in a drought for about 2 years now, but we are still allowed to use drip irrigation and hose irrigation if we stand there and watch it so as not to waste our water, a precious and expensive resource. So can anyone make some suggestions on how to get some permaculture / food forest agriculture started here? Oh, and I could use a copy of that book! Sidney Patin Colorado Springs, CO

Welcome to the forum Looby. I live in Colorado Springs, CO Zone 5-B. I am slowly working on some permaculture ideas for my place. Maybe your book has some suggestions for high semi-arid zones currently in drought?
