Cool page. Looks like you are doing some great stuff with swales, earth building, community...yea yea yea! Like it like that!
Maybe see you for the Spring 21 Ceremony on Bald Mountain? Or the Denver Willow Way Permaculture panel at Greenscapes?
I am glad that you liked the presentation and I hope that we can find a way that these ideas can be of use to what you are trying to do with Livin. Perhaps we can arrange a time to make the presentation to your group.
I have currently have Buffalo Heart Project under "my events" You can see the the pic. did not load right. I reformatted it, resized it and that is the best I was able to create. The origonal pic would not event show, it would come up as a small red x. Also, when I try loading a pic in a text box I get this weird file language.
Thanks for your help! I'll call you later if I still can't figure it out. Peace, Phil
Hi Phillip. Not quite sure what you mean by having problems getting graphics up on the site. I haven't noticed any issues. Perhaps you can create one of your events and load a graphic -- so I can see what you mean. You can skype me at LSquiresSkype or +1 303-926-5159
