These days farmers and producers seem to either be getting too much rain or not enough, but waiting for the weather to change is just not an option when you are dealing with Alberta’s short growing season. Increasing a farm’s resiliency to drought and flood can make all the difference in an overly wet year or an overly dry year for that matter.

Proper water management can help improve a farm’s water supply security in times of flood and drought and make more efficient work of on-farm water resources. By implementing beneficial management practices, farmers and producers can protect their water resources to ensure smooth operations for generations to come.

Join us to learn all about how swales can positively impact your farm water management practices. Takota Coen from Coen Farm in Ferintosh, Alberta, will be drawing on his extensive permaculture knowledge to discuss how Coen Farm uses swale formation as a tool to manage water and increase resiliency on their farm. Please join us if you would like to learn more about the many benefits of this water capture method.
