Equine Permaculture Design: Part 9

March 2017 by Dr Mariette van den Berg, BAppSc (Hons), MSc, PhD (Equine Nutrition), RAnNutr, Certified Permaculture Design Consultant,

Following on from previous articles in this exclusive Equine Permaculture Design Series, Dr Mariette van den Berg explains how the permaculture design principles are applied in practice and in situations that are particularly 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. 

Following on from last month’s article on managing water on a horse property, this article focuses on re-using and re-cycling what would otherwise be ‘waste’ water from areas around your horse stables and yards.
