We live on an 83 acre off grid ranch in a beautiful valley looking out at the la Plata mountains of SW Colorado.
We recently hosted a Permaculture meeting October 6-7h 2018. We have a growing spaces dome garden, a hoop house, raised beds, and some terraced organic farming happening, as well as milking goats. We have gardening, composting, Vermiculture and mycology areas to work on come early Spring.
Our animals include 2 horses, a llama , cats and dogs. I make goat cheese when milk is available. There are 3 yurts on the property, a main residence, a two room bunkhouse and a barn.
Our immediate need is help with caretaking of my 95 yr old mom. She has many stories to share and loves to sketch.
