Hi
I am new to permies and live in dairy country near Wendell- Home to some of the largest manure / milk producers in the state of Idaho. I am interested to learn more about permaculture methods. We raise beef cattle and have a few chickens. We use our cattle for vegetation control around the pivots and canals. I have many dream projects and attempt to use what I know to create a sustainable farm. I am getting things done but I need more information on how others did it. I would like to learn what worked for them and what mistakes to avoid from their experiences. I have lived here for five years; I've replaced many fences and cleared some land for pasture. We have upgraded some of the buildings. I am recycling/repurposing salvaged glass for an earthship type project. I am not overly familiar with framing/construction/roof pitch for my greenhouse but I am still collecting glass, wine bottles and haven't started to dig yet. I figure it will take 3-5 years. I hope to learn as I go. My plan is to use what I have to achieve what I want. I want a water-collecting cistern, solar heated/powered glass wall structure between buildings that will have heat and living area... I am still in the planning process.... and welcome ideas.
