Self-watering Systems

Learn the theory and practice of efficient self-watering systems for any size garden. Drought-proof your garden and go away knowing your green spaces shall be well watered.

We are fortunate enough to live in a temperate climate with plenty of rainfall.

Yet most home, community and market gardens demand constant watering during the growing season. How can we optimize watering systems?

There is an art and science to water retention in the landscape. It is all a matter of understanding how water flows, and how to slow and direct that flow to nurture plant life.

Well designed self-watering systems lessen workloads and support the development of healthier polycultures.

This day course is an opportunity to learn the theory and practice of efficient self-watering systems. You will learn how water moves through landscapes and how we can mimic these patterns to suit site-specific conditions. After you will explore how to apply the principles learned to design efficient self-watering systems.
