[quote="duane"] Next, to build the contour you have to follow this sprayed line with your excavator or bobcat and DIG into the ground RIGHT on the line and if your machine is downhill drag out the soil to a depth on no more than 300-500mm. Do this all the way along the length of the contou...

Also here is the link to a post devoted to countours - perhaps you have already seen it?

Hopefully, looking at all these resources will help with ideas.

Also this is a scan of a diagram from BFTB – in the chapter about Contours. Clem, do you have the book? http://i849.photobucket.com/albums/ab56/JuleneH/ContourdiagramfromBFTB.jpg I too find the contour aspect of NSF the most difficult to understand of all the concepts. Earlier in this post, KP wrote...

Hi Clem, Bearing in mind what Duane has written about legalities, here are some videos of Peter Andrews which you might find useful: Controlling Water 1/2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76fWInus5YQ Controlling Water 2/2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQRpZBy09oA Building a Dam http://www.youtube.com...

Hi Ian, Like many others, I have always admired your posts for their passion and enthusiasm and eloquence. Now I sense that you are very disheartened. Can I echo Duane's thoughts that you (and your wife, who must be an absolute gem!) are just one unit who have limits? The responsibility needs to be ...

Photos

I've just realised Shirley did a post on how to upload photos: http://naturalsequencefarming.com/forum ... .php?t=691. I would still like to know whether it's possible to upload video?

Hi Duane, I think you are referring to what I wrote in the post just above. The actual quote is (I finally sourced it again in your post on Sep 6, 2008, under the topic "Water and Its Role in the Recovery of Climate" regarding a water conference in Spain - http://naturalsequencefarming.com...

Hi Duane, The gravity force that you are talking about (carrying nutrients etc downhill) is another principle that seems to be unique to NSF. I haven't read it elsewhere when reading about permaculture, biological farming etc. There's that really great quote from the Sri Lankan king of 800+ years ag...

Working with Nature

Hi Duane, Here are some thoughts taken from Linda Woodrow's book, The Permaculture Home Garden (2007) which are similar to what you are saying: Natural forces are very strong. If you are working with them, they make powerful allies. If you are working against them, they make formidable adversaries.....

Duane, thanks so much for sharing that information. It makes things a lot clearer. Thanks also to Shirley for posing the questions. I’m very glad to hear the former-GG is still on the case. I haven’t seen any updates on him for awhile. No doubt he is working diligently behind the scenes. At a grass-...

Canberra rally

Hi Sheila, Thank you for the invitation to post something on (We) can do better. Unfortunately, I ran out of time also. (I didn't get email notification of your reply for some reason and was too busy with my kids to check the forum directly until the morning of the rally.) It would be great if you f...

Canberra rally

Hi Wallaby and Sheila, Thank you for your comments and I understand your concerns. On the surface it does seem like there is conflict between what Peter Andrews and Peter Spencer stand for. In fighting for property rights, the supporters of Peter Spencer could cause the very destruction (by clearing...
