The Internship – Water Harvesting Project…

Following the PDC Michelle hosted an NVC introduction before we started the internship project.  Due to the urgency of water needs on site we decided to direct our efforts there.  A structure was designed and built using mostly natural or recycled materials and with the help of all the folk who stayed on to help in a matter of days we had the beginnings of our water harvesting system.

We decided on a green roof, partly to fit more into the landscape but also to make use of resources we had on site.  This will slow the water collection down but should make little difference once at saturation point.  The multi functionality of the structure offers protection to the secure storage facility whilst allowing some space for shelter when outdoor workers need it.  It also provides a wildlife habitat and cuts down on rain noise.  Finishing touches have been held up due to a planning enforcement notice.

  2. All you need to do is to decide on what degree of these principles you want to incorporate into your garden design.
    Nitrogen equates to the hot things such as manures or
    road kill and the carbon equates to the dry wood based matter such as dry grass clippings, dry wood chips, paper, cardboard, or dry tree mulch.
