Thanks for the message Loraine and congratulations on your new home with the huge yard. That is really awesome in the true sense of the word. I own our future home in Salida (we live in evergreen now) on 1/4 acre and built an 850 sq ft geodesic growing dome that is now used by 3 local school for their organic gardening programs. It has been exciting to see the students take the opportunity and create something of significance.
I will be back in boulder on april 20 at the meadows branch library at 6:30 for the same program. I hope that time/date will work for you. I look forward to meeting you and hearing about the evolution of your home.
