Hi everyone, just wanted to pop in and share a new video that we've released over at Elemental Ecosystems.

This is the second year of our water restoration project at Tabula Farms.  Over a dry, hot summer, we installed a stock pond and earthworks which would hydrate the landscape and capture the seasonal rains.  If we work with nature, we can restore any landscape back to ecological health.  Watch this film and share it to see how water can restore damaged land and bring balance.

Love their work ! But please, please do not go into a trench without protection, people are killed all the time in trenches.

Trench safety info.

Great example of using earth works to help the farm and the ecology.
