A tour of my rainwater garden project where I use permaculture techniques to grow corn and squash in the desert with no supplemental irrigation. It's a project that I've been doing for a few years now and I think it's good example of what can be done with limited water and resources.

Permaculturist Brian Kerkvliet shows how he gently shapes soil to form ponds which overflow into connected swales (ditches on contour). They slow and retain water while distributing nutrients through the whole landscape. On the mound of soft earth dug out from one swale,...
