Water Management Workshop (Sat. & Sun.)

Sat Jun 2 to Sun Jun 3, 2018, Wakefield, QC

Nothing defines the nature of an area more than water does!

Did you know that by applying water management we can restore landscapes? By utilizing the correct techniques we can help to prevent and reverse erosion, reduce flooding, and hinder droughts!

Whether you are a property owner looking to combat flood, drought, and erosion, A student looking to further their knowledge in the water cycle, Or you’re simply curious to learn about how we can interact with water to benefit both us and the planet…

We’ve got an interesting and informative workshop coming up for you!

Through Permaculture we learn to make positive interventions on the landscape through earthwork techniques. Our approach is to ensure that every drop of water is used to its optimal potential and doing so without harming the natural cycles.
