In this video, the land owner describes the soil / subterrenian water issues, annual rainfall and family requirement calculations for an off grid system – how they are resolved, water storage and use, solar heating, solar water pumping, indigenous plants – as well as liquid fertilising – this is an almost off-grid Urban Permaculture Homestead and some things can be learned in this video tour.
I didn’t note any mentioned plans for animal keeping or even bees for that matter so it would be interesting to catch an update of the system and how it has changed or improved over the last few years since 2014…

I would reccommend that the land owner in this case to take a look into studying Holzer Permaculture specifically in Water Retention, this will help solve his water storage / retention issues.

The video is around 8 min’s and there are good ideas to follow from watching …
