Thanks for posting this for all of us. Now can anyone tell me the technical name for a swale? I'm in the process of writing a letter to my Township to try and get a little more permaculture understanding. Most of the people on the board are farmers and if I can use my property as the example hopefully they will look into it a little bit more. Any progress is better than nothing.

Hmm, there doesn't seem to be a technical name just a definition or description. Not the same as a ditch.
