Thanks for the response

There's a field a few hundred yards down the road where people in the neighborhood dump organic matter...grass clippings mostly but probably some tree trimmings and stuff like that as well.

I'm guestimating the property drops 10 ft over a length of about 160 ft.

I'm in East Wenatchee, on a suburban lot about 1/4 acre with a slight west-facing slope. My soil is dry and sandy. I want to grow as much organic food as possible on my property.

Where do I begin? I want to build my soil. I'm going to start doing vermiculture.

I only have city water (expensive) and rain water (not much in summer). I plan to set up a rainwater catchment system (starting with 4x275gallon IBC) in the coming weeks because I figure that's going to be necessary to get through summers.

I want to learn about permaculture. I don't know anything at this point. What's a good starting point?
