Water catchment and management are integral parts of Permaculture, and swales are an important tool to in this process. In this workshop, Vaughn Zeller, and I will discuss contours, swales and swale building. The group will then establish some contour lines in the park using three methods. We will learn how to use the A-frame level, water level, and builder's level to generate these contour lines. No digging involved. We will not actually make swales, only experience the layout. This promises to be a fun and informative Meetup. This is something that kids can participate in and you are encouraged to bring them. There is a playground within sight of where we will be working. The Meetup will be at the edge of the large teepee shaped structure across from Hogan's Fountain. Don't worry if you are late to this Meetup as we will do the discussion first, then turn to the practical.
