Earthworks Hydrology Course (5 days – Monday to Friday)
– Learn the skills you need for water security on the land

Earthworks hydrology construction is one of the first big steps in getting a property established and can be an invaluable investment into its future, so it is something you want to get right. Earthworks going wrong can be very expensive and a major setback for you and your property. This course will be a little different to other courses in earthworks hydrology construction as you will be given the opportunity to operate an excavator to gain a good solid understanding of how it works and what it is capable of doing. You will leave this course with an understanding and the knowledge needed to implement earthworks hydrology; where it is to be implemented, why it is to be implemented there, how to implement it there, and how it will work once constructed.

Instructors: Danial Lawton and David Spicer

Danial and David have worked in the permaculture education field for over 10 years and have seen the need become more apparent for a course to skill people on the ground, in the basics.

In this course you will learn the theory and practice behind permaculture earthworks hydrology, learning the skills you need; locating the appropriate site, site design, surveying and directing earthmoving equipment to establish dams, swales, terraces, road access, level sill spillways and more.
