How to Make Swales – Part Three. The Digging

To all those out there who feel that YOU are a Guardian of the Earth, I´m happy to share the journey, to inspire you and to pass on what I am learning through my recent studies of Permaculture.

To study Permaculture with Geoff Lawton, enroll for the 2022 Permaculture Design Certificate course here: and remember to write 2022WEEDYBEARD at checkout to save USD $100 couresy Weedy 🙂

I hope after this third video you will know exactly what a swale is, where to use them and how to build one…whereever you are in the world.

Special thanks to my mates who helped me dig, who are a part of our tribe at:

Thanks also to Ben Missimer for the Lidar mapping from:
