I've been studying permaculture for over 15 years. I live in western Colorado and do permaculture on my land where I built my strawbale house ( and am still finishing). Seven years ago I was blessed enough to be able to purchase some land with a friend...recently we extended our community by purchasing our neighbors property and invited others to join. Our community is growing!
I began teaching permaculture a few years ago and have realized that I learn almost as much as I teach. It has been really beautiful to watch the revolution grow over the last 20 years and witness the receptivity (and eagerness) people have to alternative lifestyles. It is really been inspiring.
We are open to others joining our community for temporary or permanent...come visit if you are in Western Colorado. Check out "The Oasis" on the WWOOF network....
