In an era of drought, the need for people is growing daily with hands-on
skills in hydrological restoration and the integration of farming utilizing
the principles that lead to ecological stability.

>From *April 5-8, 2017, Water Harvesting for Dryland Farming: Earthworks for
Resiliency, *a fundamental course in farm scale water harvesting techniques
for dryland environments will be taking place in Hyder, Arizona.

In partnership with Lush Cosmetics, join international educator, Warren
Brush, with a dynamic teaching team that includes Brad Lancaster (
http://www.harvestingrainwater.com) and Kate Tirion (
https://www.facebook.com/DeepDirtFarmInstitute/), at Jalisco Jojoba Farm.
Learn about earthworks and hydration strategies for dryland ecological
farming, land restoration, and agroecosystem stability and resilience.

Whether students are working on their own landscape, farm, or as a
consultant, this course will grow their skills in the appropriate design
and construction of structures that will reduce erosion, increase
productivity, harvest & store water, and create resiliency in the ecologies
that sustain us.

A major component of this course will be hands-on skill development where
we will establish on-site earthworks with large earthmoving equipment.
Students will be able to dive deeper into large earthworks development,
water infiltration strategies and systems linking, planting and
commissioning, and additional hydration strategies curated for dryland
