Following on from previous articles in this exclusive Equine Permaculture Design Series, Mariette van den Berg explains how the permaculture design principles are applied in practice. Through an observation planning and implementation process that pays particular attention to the elements that are relevant in horse properties. 

The permaculture design approach aims to build systems that are easier to manage, more efficient and sustainable, whilst considering the health and wellbeing of all - people, horses, plants and the soil that sustains them. And this article focuses on how we can harvest and store that most precious of natures resources: water.
