This is for the first DVD in the World Domination Gardening DVD set. The set covers two separate workshops (one in a warm climate, and the other a colder climate) and covered the earthworks for building a pond without a liner, a swale, and a hugelkultur bed on a terrace. Then we added more footage by doing the same workshop over again in a colder climate.
At the high point of the property, water is rushing in whenever it rains. This water is cutting a deep channel through the property. The idea is that we would like to capture this water and use it to create an oasis! Of course, water coming off of a road will probably contain some heavy metals and petroleum residue. So we need to clean the water first. A pond is dug so that the heavy metals will sink to the bottom of the pond, and gross stuff that floats (like oil) will be caught by the vegetation. We then do some minor re-shaping to the road so the water will enter the pond.
If you have paid--or been given a gift-code through kickstarter--you already have access to the video. For you, it is now magically embedded in the first post of this thread, right above the "upgrade plans" paypal place.
I can make screenshots and put in some shinny font stuff to make it easier to spot when I get back from the dentist, if you'd like!
Hi. Thanks for the clarification, but I don't see the embedded link or the "paypal" place in the first post. I followed each link above in case it was in another post, but didn't find it there either. It is in "my stuff", but when I click on it, it takes me to this posting. Some fancy text or something would be helpful I guess. Thanks.
