Lori and Jeff Haynes of Dripping Springs Ollas

Lori and Jeff Haynes of Dripping Springs Ollas

In 2009 Lori and Jeff Haynes returned to the United States to a town called Dripping Springs, just west of Austin, Texas. After Jeff’s twenty-four year career as a Marine the couple was anxious to get back home to Texas and put down roots.

In 2011, Lori founded Dripping Springs OLLAS (DSO) with the mission of making the OLLA (pronounced oi ya) – a natural, geographically appropriate option for irrigation by self-reliant Southwestern gardeners. Lori designed and field tested the Dripping Springs OLLA which are made from Tecate clay per Lori’s specifications.

Today Jeff and Lori join us to discuss ollas as a low tech, traditional solution to Texas’ (and other areas) water issues, irrigation reduction and self reliance as well as integration in to your families system of nutritious and nourishing food production.
