Where do you begin with transitioning degraded lands into sustainable ecological systems? It all starts with water. Learn from certified permaculture designer and author of the book, Restoration Agriculture, Mark Shepard, about his NRCS-compatible adaptations to keyline design and practical ways for you to apply them to your land. This 3-part series will expand your understanding of how water behaves within landscapes, teach you terminology to identify the contours on your land as well as to communicate these water management concepts more clearly and effectively between government agency officials and farmers.
In Session 1, Mark will go beyond simply discussing erosion control and into how these water management systems function to improve the local watershed, soil quality, biodiversity, crop health and finances, thereby speeding the healing of the entire landscape as a whole.
