    I have recently inherited a home on an acre of land in Ridgecrest, Ca. I am very interested in establishing a food forest/permaculture environment on this land. This is all new to me so I'll be asking loads of questions. I do however have lots of experience in conventional gardening on the east coast, which is where I'm from. I've always enjoyed the act of gardening and I've naturally been attracted to organic gardening.

    Anyways, I look for forward to learning lots.

    hello and welcome,

    i hope it all goes well. i love gardening too. i
    don't care where as long as i can get my hands
    (and feet too it seems :) ) in the dirt...

    for any arid climate the use of a mulches and
    wind breaks help so much. i'm not in an arid
    climate so i've not had to deal with many of
    the issues you're likely to be facing, but having
    watched how Geoff's Greening the Dessert the
    Sequel site has been going over the years i can
    see that it really is possible to do a lot even in
    some of the worst areas of the planet. just have
    to apply some love and smarts. :)
