we are still scoping out our options with our property as far as establishing zones. slowly accumulating materials to try out a rocket stove mass heater in the barn/shop. also drawing up some plans for a lean-to greenhouse on our south side with a partial geodesic dome. we have little to no experience with gardening, so we want to be more exposed to other people's projects and learn from them through dialogue and exchanging ideas. i've read somewhere that teaching(or maybe it was 'convincing') people like us about permaculture is easier than someone who has been monoculture gardening with pesticides their whole lives. hoping that person was right!
