This Build up your life: water series was focused mainly in three different areas:
1. Water retention in the landscape and groundwater restoration;
2. Water harvesting for households consumption;
3. Waste water treatment, re-use and re- introduction in the landscape. We started to introduce a lot of these elements at the farm and more are planned to be introduced in the next coming months.
