Water Management, day 2

We went to Kalisada to see the building of a waste water garden as it is happening!

A few problems delay the costruction: we need better quality pipes and glue than the ones found in the area and there cannot be any compromise in the quality of these materials.

The students of this course proved to be remarkable. Beate and Burkhard suggested an improvement in Norman's invention of the anti-sludge septic tank. Budding permaculturists in action! Norman didn't know if he should be proud of his students or if he should start wondering about his invention.

We also talked about water storage, water tanks and fish ponds, ways to make fishponds waterproof, shapes, water quality, etc., etc. Another full, inspiring, exciting day!
