Description

New from best-selling author Mark Shepard! Written as a companion to the best seller Restoration Agriculture, this book will help farmers capture water in areas they want to and avoid having water flow immediately to the low point. The result? Less water expense, healthier crops and livestock, and less erosion...just to name a few. 

What you will listen to in this audiobook is a distillation of more than 25 years of on-the-ground experience working with and modifying the Yeomans Keyline Plan. From the backyard suburbs to 10,000-acre ranches and everywhere in between, from permafrost mountainsides just shy of the Arctic Circle, to equatorial boulder fields of East Africa, areas with 300 inches of rain per year to those with less than three inches, I have personally installed systems based on the Keyline design methodology and its modified forms. What you will listen to in this audiobook is tried and true. It is intended to give a sufficient background to any landowner so they can optimize their water resource for higher site productivity, have greater drought resistance, and just as importantly, to know deep in their heart that they have made even one little piece of earth a little more life-filled, livable, and green.

Be advised; skip the audible version. PDmuthafnFs!

Come on Audible. This is fascinating information that very much needs visual aids to make sense. The text is always referencing figures and diagrams that seem to be unavailable. The narrator mentions how important it is to get the accompanying PDFs, but there is no way to access them. No option from within the app, no option from the website. GIVE ME MY PDFS!! GIVE THEM TO ME!!! I WANT I WANT I WANT!

Need the figures

Love the book but it is super hard to understand without the figures. Purchasing the physical copy so I can get this content. Have listened to other books that used figures to illustrate and they were included as PDFs. Wish this were the case with this book.

Excellent key line primer

Could have done without the repetition and website addresses in the audible version. The balance of technical and inspirational content was wonderful

Great book not great for audio

Lots of information here, but even though I am familiar with this concept, I found it very hard to follow. Trying to articulate the way water moves over land, without illustration is nearly impossible. If you are designing your own water management system, I would purchase the paper copy to keep as a reference guide.

A necessary addendum to Yeoman’s “Water for Every Farm”

Excellent book with clear narration and practicable guidance for implementing contour farming and water catchment principles on a farm. Shephard describes what he has learned from 20 years of key line design in the continental US, making key-line principles more accessible and less intimidating along the way. Shepard also offers ways legal advice and terminology to make contour farming follow USDA guidelines and provides links to crucial soil and climate data and other resources.

For the audio version, it is helpful to have a basic understanding of key line design before reading this book. The referenced .pdf’s were not available at the time I bought it but was able to follow most of his guidelines without then regardless due to having read Yeoman’s book once years ago.

I will be recommending this to people often.
