Dew Pond Creation - Part D
Published at : 04 Nov 2020
Dew Pond Creation - Part D is the continuation of my dew pond project of creating a water supply where there wasn't any before. In this video the pond has made it through winter and the frogs have come to live and raise babies. I also planted a bird and butterfly mix around the pond and it is growing nicely. The entire ecosystem has changed in the area as a result of the new pond. Animals visit, insects, dragon flies, and the frog sing all night long. At the end of the video is recorded footage of nighttime frog songs. Live from Intricate Nature's Dew Pond.
Adding water supply into environment changes the local habitat and now frogs have sought out the fresh water supply as well as many different wild animals based on tracks in dirt surrounding pond. This permaculture design and build project was created on top of a mountain ridge where a pond would most likely not be created naturally. Dew ponds are a potable water collection from rainfall or "dew" which often was created a watering source for cattle or livestock. It is a resource that can increase self reliance in an off grid situation and is a material that is needed in building construction. Benefits included are a change in the environment and surrounding ecosystem, frog and toad production, dragonfly adaptation, happy peaceful self reliant humans, water supply for deer and small animals, possible food and water supply.
