Two New Videos on Permaculture Terrace Creation

Here are two new videos on building terraces.  These methods will work best in areas with a gentle slope, a source of fill and organic matter on site or at low cost and lots of rocks available.  The basic principles though can be employed anywhere.  These videos are part of a growing series that is now 15 videos long, if you want the entire play list you can find it here.

  1. Great video Jack.

    We just sold our house and are moving to our homestead in January. The 5 acres have a bit more than a slight slope. I think swale and terraces are the perfect way to restore the land.

    Sadly the owners had a logging company clear 2 acres. I LOVE the cleared land, but the sure did a number on it.

    The videos in the series have been a huge help. Thanks Jack and the rest of TSP!

  2. Thank you Jack. This is an excellent concept on developing productive gardening/forest space using minimal powered equipment. I have been collecting firewood for over four years and have about 40 ricks. You gave me a perfect use for my excess and aging firewood to use to transform my raw land into something more useful than sloped pasture. I don’t have any rocks on the land, so may need to use hugelkultur to build the terrace wall, using some of my larger wood pieces, and not going up more than a foot with the wall.
