Hello Everybody,
     
As we transition from summer to fall, it's that time of year again to reap the benefits of our labors and get settled in for winter. I hope everyone's having a great October, feeling the cold breeze sweep through, and watching the leaves change behind a warm mug of coffee.

Our PDC went extremely well this year. I'd like to give a special thanks to Adam Brock, Kelly Simmons, Avery Ellis, and Ainslie O'Neal for their exceptional work in and out of the classroom.  Even though we would have loved to have more students for the experience, the family feel can't be beat. Some on-site projects we accomplished were more swales on the south east facing hillside, and installing a grey water system to the west side of the house.

2015 PDC

We've chosen the dates for our 29th annual PDC, for June 15th-26th. More information can be found on our website at CRMPI.org

We planted the hugelkultur swales here with winter squash, and harvested them with some amazing volunteers recently. Been having amazing pumpkin and squash soup or curry almost every night since!
We stopped by Rock Bottom Ranch the other week to trade rabbits for chickens and a rooster. Rock Bottom Ranch serves as ACES' (Aspen Center for Environmental Studies) mid-valley hub for environmental education, wildlands preservation, and sustainable agriculture. Rock Bottom Link
While we were here we stopped to check out their year-round greenhouse that operates with the climate battery Michael Thompson and I designed and implemented. Also, we took a look at their rolling thunder, sliding greenhouse.
