Sustainable Natural Micro-Farming


Drains coming from the house, and water coming off the roof were sending a deluge toward the greenhouse. This was probably partly responsible for the shifts in the structure over time. In order to alleviate this going forward, drains were created in order to divert the flow around the structure.

It turns out that on one side there was already an attempt to do this in the past, so we just uncovered and fortified it.

This drainage is also important to the front of the yard as portions of it were always “swampy” during the rainy season. There is a drainage ditch toward the rear where all of this water ends up. This was likely created years ago to direct water down the hill or toward areas needing irrigation.
