Swale Angel

When you go long distance backpacking, Trail Angels leave water and snacks for you at points where access to civilization is near. Five gallon water jugs help hikers refill canteens etc...

So my Swale Angels left me a skid loader (Bobcat like) for a week. (Pictures to follow) Went out last morning and the yellow bugger was sitting out back with forks and two buckets. I have a week to do some serious earthworks and mulch hauling while learning how to use it. Doing no harm.

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design
Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
