Dryland Techniques

Postby DevilsBrew » Tue Oct 01, 2013 1:23 pm

I can't use wood where I live as mulch so I have been researching all different kinds of gardening styles in order to find different ways of conserving moisture. I stumbled across dryland farming while reading about Mennonites farming in Russia. Thought I would post links as I came across them. Feel free to add any that you find interesting.

Are you familiar with Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond by Brad Lancaster?

If memory serves, there are two volumes to Lancaster's work. If you could only have one, the second volume is the one to get.
