Glenn Gall, "Farm Scale Permaculture Water Harvesting"

  • 1. Farm Scale Permaculture Water Harvesting Slow it down Spread it out Store it Save it
  • 2. How Much Water On Your Farm? How Many Inches of Rainfall?
  • 3. How Much Water? How Many Inches of Rainfall? How Much Volume?
  • 4. How Much Water? How Many Inches of Rainfall? How Much Volume? To Estimate -- 4” = ~100,000 gallons/acre 40” = ~1,000,000 gallons/acre 3 acre ft = ~1,000,000 gal.
  • 5. How Much Water? How Many Inches of Rainfall? How Much Volume? Rain Falls On Farm? Enters From Off Farm?
  • 6. How Much Water? How Many Inches of Rainfall? How Much Volume? On Farm? / From Off Farm? Drainage? Ponding? Porosity/Infiltration? Runoff? Flow Rates? Ground Water? Needs?

  • 20. Keyline Agroforestry Single bottom plow or other equipment can create swales to capture water. Trees are often planted near swales, which help provide sufficient water. “Alleys” between rows can be cropped or grazed while trees grow. Credit: Mark Shepard, New Forest Farm

  • 23. Versaland -- Grant Schultz 145 Acres in NE Iowa -- Government $ for:  Tree Seedlings  Tubes  Pasture/Hay Seed  Equipment  Shelter
  • 25. Diverse Cover Crops Diverse, multi-species cover crops allow for massive photosynthesis which can generate new topsoil. Gabe Brown in N.D.with only 16” rain per year has developed over five feet of topsoil at 6% organic matter. It infiltrates water at 8” per hour and does not pond, even with 13” rainfall in a day. 8 weeks with only 0.38” rainfall Gabe Brown Peter Byck, Soil Carbon Cowboys
  • 26. Holistic Managed Grazing Pasture is dense perennial cover. Photosynthesis creates sugars which are sent to roots to feed microbes which help plants to grow and also leave carbon rich humus. This is much of the basis for topsoil. Planned grazing which avoids overgrazing and allows for sufficient rest keeps grasses healthy and grows topsoil.
