Build Project Description

Thank you for your interest. SELF is back on the planning table, due to lack of materials to go forward this year. You know when you are sooo eager to break ground, and the crew doesn't show up, well it's time to continue planning for when it all can come together. We had the funding lined up and the heavy equipment, but the universe had other plans. So, two single Moms are holding the dream together for working next spring. Hope to plant and build. We will share our experience with you and look forward to your interests. Thank you. Any build job takes more than you expect. We are surely on course.

<br>SELF is a idea that became a project.&nbsp; Partly "how to save the World" and partly "DIY" approaches to the Farm, sustainability will have it's hay day in this 20 acre sand box. We will work with the elements at hand: Sand =Cob, earth ship, growing Hemp in Colorado's start-up year and experimenting with alternative ideas of turning the dessert into a home.

It's been a year to watch in Colorado. Thanx to all the farms that got up and worked. This year of 2015 just might be our year. We have a couple new interested investors and we are currently editing our proposal to submit by end of year. April will be start up month and I can see the backhoe being delivered the same day the local farmer comes to plow the land. If you are interested in being a part of SELF, a Sustainability Farm, keep checking in for updates. We have a dream and could be manifesting it this 2015 Spring season.

Very interesting blog. A lot of blogs I see examcollection 642-747 these days don't really provide anything that I'm interested in, but I'm most definitely interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know about examcollection 642-883
