hey folks,

My phone was acting wonky so this is only a partial video, but nonetheless this was taken at the recent Earthworks Q&A in Escondido, CA.

Jacob and Alden jump into the new pond



The water in the pond came from the rain in one evening.

Paul,
You mention seeding in the Q&A.

Do you have any recommendations as to what is best for seeding earthworks?



We're installing a second pond on a small farm in Missouri.
From reading around the university extension papers, It seems they recommend millet (but it's not too clear).

(At this point I'm planning a mix of millet and clover. Mulched with straw from my land, If I can scythe enough of it )

-Ryan

nice video, thats a good bit of water from one days rain, i think it may have been properly designed and placed... though of course different areas get different quantities of rain at a time
