Building community gardens on contour collects water and stores it in the ground for dry times. We also have 5 ponds that water can be taken from from gardens. A curb cut is planned for the swale design. We want all the water on the land and do not want it drained away prematurely.The ladies of the Kenyan community will grow traditional crops for self and sale. They get four harvests in 35 days. Then replant as the plant gets too tough for eating.
