Setting up gravity fed water system for regenerative agriculture

Rob describes the gravity fed water system he is building, and some of its key gravity water system design features. This system will facilitate regenerative agriculture on the farm by providing water for livestock and irrigation while using no sources of energy other than gravity.

Portable Wood Storage For Lazy People

#Shorts One of the main tools in permaculture is zone planning. As we are approaching winter and we are going to have to move a lot of wood to heat our house we decided to build 2 portable wood sheds that we will position close to the house for the heating season. They are build on skids and can be moved elsewhere in spring. These sheds can be filled through the season and then positioned with a fork lift right before the heating season.

Milling Our Logs

#shorts #portablemill Today we milled our logs into boards and cants.

Why Up To Date Aerial Imagery Is Crucial For Farm Design #shorts

#shorts Today we are going to fly our property with a drone to capture all the work that we did this year so that we can continue to do design through the winter. This will give us true dimensions of the new elements and allow us to fit new elements in. We use a DJI Phantom 4 to do our aerial imagery.
