Re: Does Permaculture have to be so expensive
I read about how you take two stakes and make a A with a rock or something
hanging down as a pendulum and with this you can tell where to dig a trench
that will catch water in back of a tree. anyone care to explain that a
little more. my understanding is that all land not being level has a
downhill. if you put this trench behind your trees it will fill with water
and the water will stay in the trench and thus the tree can go longer
without water. I seen it once (I don't get out much) and for such a simple
science it was so wise. I would like to learn more about that.
