About Me:
I spent the last 15 years in higher education and technology/distance learning. I then left academia to start our educational mini-farm at our residence. We now run classes in a variety of topics related to food production and natural living.

We now have a 600 gallon aquaponics system inside a greenhouse with breeding tanks and nursery indoors. We also have 33 chickens & 3 turkeys, a dairy cow with calf and a dairy goat.

For pets, we have 2 dogs and a cat.

Thanks for the update--My Basque hen started siting 4 days ago and since the rooster is gone, I've had to find another source and there is a fellow that works at Western Ranchman who has promised to bring me a few eggs tomorrow.  I am sorry your hens gave up on the project but we tried.....:-)  No big deal--it was an experiment after all.

Hey Sheri,

Couple of questions for you:

I have 3 almost 6 months old Muscovy drakes.  Might you be interested in a swap where you take the 3, and bring me back a dressed one?

Other question, I would like to buy some duckweed from you.  Might you be able to drop it by, whenever you are in Tempe?

Thanks in advance,

Lis (pronounced Liz, just a funny spelling)

I'm looking forward to your bug class!  Will you have bugs available?  Might you be interested in hosting a local producer of BSFL?  Before or after the class?  If its not acceptable by the 'rules',  that's ok too.  I just found out that a gentleman I've been working with on AP stuff has some for sale.

Thank you, Sheri.  I wasn't aware of the difference between the two kinds of worms.  Can a pound of red wigglers ($25!) generate a decent amount of compost for a vegetable garden?  Thanks!  Sofia

Hi Sheri,
Boy, you've got me excited now!!  I'm going to try to make it tomorrow night.  But I'm not familiar with the Tempe Transportation Center.  I looked on the Permaculture site, but maybe I'm not looking in the right place?
Thank you,

Hi Sheri,

I was thinking of taking your Kitchen Worm Composter Class, but there's just the two of us and I don't know if we would have enough daily scraps to keep the worms happy.  We do, however, have a vegetable garden and wanted to find out if you sell worms or if you know where I can get some.

Thank you,

Sorry to be so slow in answering!  You asked for ideas and my brain froze up ;-)  On a slightly different idea, I noticed you are teaching an AP class in Tempe.  Would you like to offer a tour of my place, maybe after class?  I am located about a mile from where you are teaching.
