Friday 1-a

Take an action-packed tour of Keyline design—a methodology for harvesting water in soil. Learn how to improve crop yields, develop watershed resiliency, and irrigate using gravity. We’ll explore varied methods for surveying, designing, and installing Keyline landscapes, using basic hand tools to advanced GPS systems and everything in between. We’ll cover Keyline techniques to optimize plant-available moisture, design and build ponds and basins, and explore micro-hydro electricity generation.
