If you would be so kind as to elaborate on just what they do, and how
you let them do it?
I know I'm a couple of months behind, sorry! Busy busy...
Which leads to another question, since I just, to my complete and total
surprise, and absolute delight, married a man from Texas, (hence the
last year has been, well, busy....) it looks as tho my new destination
for a permaculture bit of land is now central Texas, hill country, in
the next few years. Has anyone recommendations for where to look for
good land, who to contact for resources and the like?
Thanks for any help...

It's got to come from the heart
