Rain water harvesting:

Farm ponds:  8 farm ponds were dug to ensure that the water is held on the land and percolates into the soil.  Gelling has been done where the water needs to be retained.  

 

Swales and trenches have been dug all over the land to make the running water walk and the walking water stop.  This prevents soil erosion and increases the ground water levels.

 

Organic matter in soil:  A lot of organic matter has been added to the soil to hold and retain moisture

 

Mulching:  Mulching has been done on soils to prevent evapouration
