Water Harvesting Earthworks
We will be laying out and and installing small, high-infiltration swales to collect water coming out of Windward's campground showers. It is a great opportunity to learn more about water catchment in permaculture systems, what Windward is doing in this vein, and also to gain some practical experience with simple surveying tools that anyone can create and use.
