I suppose my real concern then is simply a matter of fine tuning the size of swales and ponds (or as mark Shepard makes them, holes in the ground), as well as how to properly manage overspills areas so that crops aren't washed out when rains return in a flood event.
I'm located on the sunshine coast and there are genuine food security concerns here, as everything comes in on the ferry. I love it here for so many reasons. I'm a long ways off achieving my dream land, but sense that it'll all fall into place when I'm ready for it.
My questions also stem to Abbotsford as I've been asked to do a scope design of a permaculture system for an 8 acre property there. They are very interested in permaculture, but don't know too much about practical application possibilities. The research continues and I'll share when the report is finished.
Thanks for sharing your key line resources I'll get to them now.
Where are you based?
