I took your KDC back in 2007, and you taught about saddle dams. You showed pictures of one that you constructed, I've seen one planned out in one of your designs, and Bill Mollison has diagrams as well. However I have been trying to locate a photo of one or the coordinates to look at it on google earth, and have had no luck. Where can I locate an actual example of a functional saddle dam?

G'day Andrew, Thanks for the post...I sent a reply the other night but it failed due to .kmz files not being permitted attachments. Send me a note via email and I'll send you the links via that medium. All the best, Darren PS for the second of the 2 links check out this PhotoLog (
