Introduction to Water Conservation by Aviram Rozin
On the 1st of February, a group of 32 volunteers and guests participated in Aviram Rozin’s introduction workshop on water conservation. The workshop reviewed the importance of water conservation as well as the degrading conditions of deforested landscapes and their results on the environment.
Various aspects of water conservation methods were covered such as:
- How to recharge aquifers
- How to make bunds and swales,
- How to use leveling tools (the ‘A frame’) to defined the contour of the land
After covering the theory, the workshop moved to the field to observe and learn from the different methods already implemented in Sadhana Forest. The workshop ended with practical experience by designing a swale in the forest.
