Hi Dave my name is Chris. I have been following your your site for some time trying to find as much as possible about all forums set in my climate. Which happens to be Phx Az I've seen very little and everything here is backwards ! I just finished sepps book desert or paradise. What are some other book suggestions or people to look into?? I'm currently moving to a 2 acre parcel in town with irrigation and a 7 stall barn. I understand irrigation hurts the earth and will damage land over time but with the lack of rain heat and dryness it's tough to grow anything but cactus lol. I've been pondering ponds and such but implementation can be disasterous if not thought out so I need some permie super hero books to guide me hope you have some suggestions that are more focused on my issues? thank you Duke!
I live in Arizona and been stacking rocks .5 meters high and six inches deep. I then mulch heavy I did this originally for habitat now I know why things wanna live there. Maybe I could build a rock pile house for me too ?
