Howdy Darren ! I watched the whole series of your Keyline at the beach and that was the first time I really understood the concept. Excellent way to help others understand. Thanks !

Thanks Paul and Darren for creating this forum, the videos are great! Has keyline design ever been attempted near Eureka or Death Valley? What factors in deserts affect key line design? (Besides the movement of terrain).

Congratulations Wyomiles and Nina!

Woo Hoo, Thanks Adrien, I think I found Permies through a conversation at the survival podcast forum a long time ago, I do not really remember, so I really do not have an e-mail of someone else. Maybe draw another name out of the hat ?

Congratulations!
I hope anyone who has understood better than me will make some answers in my unreplied posts...
I made some suppositions so that it was possible to say yes or no,
and then understand better some details.

I do not feel I am all wrong, but a pity to let go some mistakes that will be read by others.

Thanks for the note Wyomiles, We did too and fortunately the internet didn't break down with 5 mins to go on the second session AND I remembered to press the record button so it was all recorded for future viewing. You will be sent a code to access this when we put it up on-line.
Thanks again and all the best,

Darren

Then sure water comes into the soil, but stays where it is. You do not direct water on contours.
You direct water when it can go down, even slightly.


I think that now I can make a resumé of what is keylines method:

This is the art of using gravity for directing water where you need it, either for helping it to go to the drier part of the land, or stocking it for later use.
