Steps Towards Permaculture and Sustainability: Recycling
We were told that it was impossible to capture rainwater from thatch! Loving a challenge, we came up with an effective way to do so! Posts support drainage pipes, just below the thatch roof, and feed rainwater into a tank, with netting sifting off any drifting straw. The stored water is much needed in the drier months in both the nursery and vegetable garden.
