Oh cool! We're planting trees next week.

Hi, my wife grew up in Denver. We're planning on a slowly growing permaculture garden and food forest with hugelkulture beds. We'll have lots of wild flowers and berry bushes for the wildlife. And eventually pastures for some larger animals like donkeys and goats.

I was think of making the support structure out of post and beam and the walls with straw bales.

I don't think moisture is a problem where I'm at.

Does anyone have experience with an small barn or animal shelter built with natural materials? I'm in the prairie so I'm thinking straw bale construction. I'm also on sandy soil so I was thinking of earth bag. Something under 200 sq feet . Looking for input. Thanks

Hello,

My wife and I along with another family are starting our off-grid homestead on 80 acres in the plains of Northeast Colorado. Anyone in the area?

Paul,

I'm extremely eager to do both of these classes for homesteading. How often do you offer it? I'm not sure I can do it this spring.

Thanks, Bryan
