I know that Sepp and many others have AMAZING ideas for earthworks; stabilizing steep slopes, retaining water, making and sealing ponds etc. but when I look at nature I don't see systems with big swales, huge mounded growing beds, terraces, and series of ponds connected with pipe drainage systems etc.

Do you have recommendations that go one (or many) steps deeper for how to translate observation into practice? Do you sit in the forest for hours and just watch? Do you start observing with particular goals of things to observe? Do you have a process for developing your methods or does it just happen?
