  1. This is one of the best blog on this topic I have come across

  2. Hi
    I’m writing you because I have a some general questions about Permaculture in very hot areas.
    We live in Bullhead City Az, on 5 acres, with a well.
    We would like to be largely self-sustainable, but are unsure how hard that would be here in this desert – (I have been told that it’s the hottest inhabited area of the USA). Summers are regularly in the 120s in our yard/shade.

    (1) We can collect water, put up solar, raise chickens, but can we grow enough vegetables here to feed six people continually – (as complete beginners)?
    (2) Does it take several years to get permaculture up and running in a place that currently has no trees, few plants – (some Creosote Bushes, Cat’s claw, various “weeds”, no cactus) and VERY rocky ground?
    Someone suggested planting grown trees to jumpstart it, but that sounds expensive.

    Actually we’re considering a move – (if we can grow pretty easily here, we will stay, otherwise, we’ll move to where it’s easier).

    (3) Is there someone you know that we might call about this?

    Thank you!

    Ken
