Wow very nice Yury, Is this a farm in your area ? Did you help with the design or work with the crew?  It looks like there are several farms doing the same work.

This looks great !  Extremely promising !

If you could plant lots and lots of trees just as fast as you built the ponds, you would have all the elements for a paradise spot !

I note the waterlogging in the rectangular areas surrounded by berms.  I guess that the berms themselves contributed to the trapped water, in your flat landscape.  You could turn that into an intentional wetland...

Wonderful world of Zdravoye (the most accurate English translation: Healthy or Sane) - relatively new but fast developing ecovillage of Kin's domains in the South of Russia, founded mostly by entrepreneurs, please enjoy this 3 min. video:

 
Why is the word "abbreviation" so long? And this ad is so short?
