am new to permaculture list -- do you know of anyone in way EASTERN new
mexico or
the el paso area who could come out here this summer and TEACH a short
course on
permaculture?

i have four GRAND, GLORIOUS, WONDERFUL acres in the northern chihuahuan
desert --

30 miles in 3 directions to small towns, crane, monahans and fto
stockton

we (in imperial) are between I-20 and I-10.  i'd be glad to arrange
publicity,
provide housing (have old, 9 room ranch house), etc.  we have a
sweatlodge here, 
and are only l4 miles from a HUGE inland 'lake', imperial reservoir/lake
-- pretty area
if you like desert, mesquite, cacti, and critters -- even  moutains way
off on horizon

this used to be a big truck farming area, with lots of good, cheap
irrigation water

soil is clayey but will grow anything the wind doesn't beat to a pulp --
but being
desert, we only get 6-l0 inches of rain/annually and need to make the
MOST of what
resources we have!
