Permaculture Series: Regenerative Land and Water Management.

The three main ingredients in life are air, water and carbon. While too much carbon ends up in the atmosphere and not in the soil the earth heats and dries. Correct management of air and water are central to reversal of desertification processes. In this course we will consider the techniques of proper water management and reaching the lands full water storage capacity. Reversal of erosive and weathering forces establishes the foundation for soil self-rebuilding. Then we will briefly review soil function and how to retrieve mineral nutrients that may be in short supply to promote regeneration and buildup of carbon. Cost: US $150 yummy vegetarian meals and camping included.
