Video of the Day: Gardening Water Management

For today’s video we have Jagannath explain the concept of microtrenches for water management. If you’re familiar with permaculture you’ve probably heard of swales, essentially that’s what these are but on a smaller scale. These trenches help stop erosion, they help keep the surrounding area moist and they help recharge the groundwater to a point. I personally have done this and it has helped a lot with the erossion in my yard, although they could stand to be a little bit bigger since we get a lot of rain here. Check it out and maybe you’ll be able to implement smarter design somewhere in your garden.
