Pond dam swale video Geoff Lawton

This is a you tube Harvesting Water the Permaculture Way by Geoff Lawton.  It's about an hour long and really helped me understand how a swale and pond / dam works.  They go through the entire process from lay out to planting the first planting.  The guys land they are working on is only 6 acres.   I though it was great so I thought I would share.  Hope you enjoy as much as I did.  It is possible it could be deleted soon per their comment section.

Not sure if someone else already has posted this or not sorry if it's duplicated.
