Gardening Resources for the Rockies?
“So, here’s a question you might know the answer to. We live in the Rockies, Zone 5a, and about half my property is up some fairly steep hills/mountainside. Base elevation is 6800’ and it goes up from there. I’ve started thinking that information about how indigenous peoples garden in mountainous regions might be useful here. I’m looking for permaculture-esque but also erosion control + edible. Can you think of any resources I might start with regarding that topic? Books or etc? Sure do appreciate it! Thanks, David!”
Any of you have any suggestions for her? This is outside my expertise.
