Rainwater Harvesting in Action!

Water is life – this has been a common theme over the past few months and one that we understand inherently as growers of food. Catching and Storing Energy is one of the principles of permaculture and setting up systems on our property that can catch and store water are some of the most important design choices that we can make. 

With the rain that we’ve been having, I took this quick video to show you one of our rainwater harvesting systems in action. The system itself is still unfinished but it gives you a good idea of how to harness this precious and important resource. 

How do you harvest rainwater on your property? I would love it if you shared the techniques you use in the comments below or if you have any questions about our system, please let me know!
