All Posts 6 Comments Roy Perren March 20, 2018 at 10:17 am Great video! I am a new subscriber and very interested in the work you are doing at Circle Ranch. Reply Chris Gill March 21, 2018 at 10:55 am Thanks Roy. These practices go by various broad names including ‘desert permaculture’ and ‘holistic management’. Our objective is always to build soil fertility by improving rainfall retention, by using animal impact supplemented where appropriate by water harvesting and subbsoil contour plowing. Reply Stephen Shafer March 20, 2018 at 10:59 am Terrific video on water harvesting. Thanks. Will send link to other friends Reply Chris Gill March 21, 2018 at 10:47 am Many thanks. I have been on many desert ranches and never seen one that did not have many opportunities for water harvesting from substandard roads, and gullies created by human impact. Reply Richard Brown April 4, 2018 at 11:51 am Is your staff/equipment available for any contract work like this on other desert ranches in the area? Reply Chris Gill April 8, 2018 at 7:10 am My advice is to master the concepts for yourself: then you can supervise those whom you hire. We don’t this as a business but I would be happy to advise and direct you where to go. Depending on where you are, I can recommend some people who understand this. 210-240-3800 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
