Marian Woodard taught students: "We don't have a water quantity issue; we have a water containment issue." Students learned how to identify the most relevant water capture systems for their property, which may include swales, dams, earthworks, ponds, and grey-water, and they learned how to use an A-frame to identify contour lines (for swales). Classes are on Saturdays, 10am - noon, through March 19. To register for any of the remaining classes, go to www.sustainablecoco.org/permaculture__series. Photos courtesy of Denise Koroslev.
The Rodgers Ranch Heritage Center's Board of Directors is excited to use our blog, Ranch Posts, to keep members and the public informed of the latest activities at the ranch. We invite you to comment, ask questions, or muse on the heritage center, both its historical past and its thriving present.
