Permaculture School

I'll be moving to the vacinity of Henderson Colorado for work in the next few months. I will be there about three years before moving back to eastern NC. I am interested in attending a permaculture school while I'm there and volunteering to gain experience. I have just over 9 acres back in NC and I would like to put that land to work for me upon returning. My over all end state for the property would be to sustain my family and sell excess to the local market.

Stevia growing in Indonesia

I was hoping you could please provide me with some contact information for someone who has or knows about stevia tissue culture plantations. We are looking for an expert that we could bring over to Indonesia and help us start and teach us about how to grow and process stevia. We understand that this will be a lengthy process of trial and error at first.

I am living in Bali, and my mother has 300 hectares (23 hectares of greenhouses) available in Lombok, and we are interested in starting a stevia plantation.

If you could please let me know who would be best to contact, it would be greatly appreciated.

Help with my Colorado Rock garden

I'm designing a rock garden in the front of the house on the north side where there is never sun. Are there any drought tolerant shade loving ground covers? I guess I will want a variety of sizes, colors and textures if anything is available. Thanks.
