It doesn’t matter where we grow. These days, we often don’t get enough rain. Even in temperate climates, we now get heatwaves and prolonged dry spells.
Standard solutions help, like mulching, growing drought-tolerant plants, and using greywater. But, as recent droughts have shown us, these solutions are not enough to keep our plants alive and feed our families without horrific water bills.
That’s why we need to make better use of the available water by simply getting more water infiltrating and stored in our soil.
