In an era of drought, the need for people is growing daily with hands-on skills in hydrological restoration and the integration of farming utilizing the principles that lead to ecological stability.

From April 5-8, 2017, Water Harvesting for Dryland Farming: Earthworks for Resiliency, a fundamental course in farm scale water harvesting techniques for dryland environments will be taking place in Hyder, Arizona.

In partnership with Lush Cosmetics, join international educator, Warren Brush, with a dynamic teaching team that includes Brad Lancaster (http://www.harvestingrainwater.com) and Kate Tirion (https://www.facebook.com/DeepDirtFarmInstitute/), at Jalisco Jojoba Farm. Learn about earthworks and hydration strategies for dryland ecological farming, land restoration, and agroecosystem stability and resilience.

Whether students are working on their own landscape, farm, or as a consultant, this course will grow their skills in the appropriate design and construction of structures that will reduce erosion, increase productivity, harvest & store water, and create resiliency in the ecologies that sustain us.  

A major component of this course will be hands-on skill development where we will establish on-site earthworks with large earthmoving equipment. Students will be able to dive deeper into large earthworks development, water infiltration strategies and systems linking, planting and commissioning, and additional hydration strategies curated for dryland environments.

Attached is a flyer with more information about the course.

Registration can be taken care of online at: http://permaculturedesign.us/waterforeveryfarm-2017. Enjoy an Early Bird price of $895 until February 1, 2017, when the price will go up to $1,050. Tuition includes instruction, 3 meals a day, and camping accommodation. Financial assistance is available for students and next generation farmers.

Thank you for your support of building a resilient landscape and for sharing this course with those who can make a resounding impact.

Because you not only gain hands on experience with large earth moving equipment, land surveying and mapping, but you come away with an overview of the ethics and principles of permaculture and water harvesting as applied to land restoration and regenerative design, land component identification, development of Farm Pollinators, natural patterning in farm application, water harvesting, drought-proofing and erosion mitigation systems applications, large earthworks & soil renovation techniques and machinery applications, and planting structures and guild development, all with an emphasis on arid-land strategies.
