This is another awesome Kickstarter whose creators are generously giving Permies a piece of the pie in exchange for our help in getting the word out, so hats off to them!

You can back this Kickstarter here.


An interactive, online course on pond building. Learn how to design, permit, build and pay for your dream pond.



In this completely online course, creators Raleigh and Grant will be showing you how to build a pond from start to finish, beginning at the data gathering stages with surveying and design, and then jumping right into the build itself. You'll learn how to build everything from a shallow wading pool to a massive 2 acre pond! The largest will include a micro hydro generator, RAM pump, and livestock waterer.

The course structure will look something like this:

  • professionally produced, step by step video content
  • live Q&A's
  • webinars
  • graphic guides
  • an online discussion group


  • Here's a rundown of the course material they're lining up:

  • Introduction to Pond Building
  • Maps, Soils, & Surveys
  • Energy, Pipe & Valves
  • Design
  • Construction and Earthmoving
  • Fish and Plant Life
  • Docks and Maintenance
  • Grants & Cost-Share Programs


  • Permies is Supplying a Reward for Backers!



    As part of Paul's participation with this Kickstarter, Permies is also offering a big juicy package of digital rewards if you back at the $119 level.

    This looks like a course for flatlanders as I'm not seeing much slopage in the pics. When you say "exhaustive" in the daily-ish, does that include us more vertically-oriented mountain folk?  Is there a syllabus for the course or something?

    Edit- syllabus is under "read more" at bottom of kickstarter page- there is some mention of topography, but I'm curious about serious topography.

    That's one thing I'm not sure about either MRJ - I emailed the guys about that one with a link to this thread, hopefully they'll jump in here soon and get you an answer.

    We'll be working with slopes all the way up to 30% or so, plenty hilly but not quite sheer granite faces of a mountain.  I think you'll get all the info you're looking for.
