Join Sean Dembrosky of Edible Acres for a detailed look at human scale water management in the landscape. For 10 years he’s been slowly evolving how water moves, stores, shifts, releases, etc in a 6 acre challenging site. All with hand tools. We’ll see small scale ponds, silt traps, swales, contour raised beds and discuss the many techniques and approaches you can use in your landscape to gently and steadily suggest paths and resting spaces for water. The key focus with this talk is to help people feel empowered to start making small shifts with the tools they have and evolve the system over time. You can do all this!
