Quail Springs Permaculture invites you to learn about what constitutes 
regenerative landscape design & restoration. Craig’s workshops offer an 
understanding of the science of water on the landscape.

This 5-day Regenerative Water Harvesting & Land Restoration training 
offers hands-on experience in the assessment, design and construction of 
an on-going restorative and regenerative watershed project with 
intensive immersion and experiential training in:

-  Healing degraded land by harvesting runoff

-  Reading the landscape and making informed decisions

-  Recognizing the symptoms and causes of degraded land

-  Identifying regenerative natural processes

-  Understanding how humans affect and are affected by the landscape and 

-  Designing resilient solutions

-  Understanding management options for degraded land

-  Deciding what is doable and what should be done first

-  Planning and preparing to complete a successful project

-  Maintaining a project and ensuring its long-term success

Participants will learn skills needed to do high quality work that will 
stand up to natural processes over time. These skills will serve a wide 
spectrum of people and professions, from backyard restorationists to 
farmers and land managers. Craig Sponholtz believes in doing it right 
the first time and spends extra time with students on projects to ensure 
that they understand the subtleties of the work being done. Emphasis on 
quality ultimately fosters immense pride of a beautiful job well done.


/"Craig Sponholtz’s Applied Watershed Restoration courses are a must. I 
was very impressed with the thoroughness, hands-on learning, and Craig’s 
deep knowledge – based on years of real-life experiences. The strategies 
taught are simple and effective. They build on natural patterns so you 
work with natural processes not against them. This way nature does the 
bulk of the work once the structures are in place. I highly recommend 
these courses for anyone working with the land and water."/  - Brad 
Lancaster, author of Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond
