Drip Irrigation Team


To help family gardens and the market garden in Gindo, this group brought materials to construct this simple irrigation system. During the dry season, rivers and creeks dry up.  Wells become the source of water for gardens and fields meaning children and women haul water for this as well as their personal needs. [br] Drip irrigation slowly waters individual plants all day long from a water source. Gravity feeds the water through the hoses to individual plants. The barrel holding the water needs only be filled once a day, and then waters each plant during the day. [br]  The farmers, gardeners, and families who received these systems were thrilled with the prospect of reduced time, effort and water needed to help their gardens produce![br][br]Oct2013.Drip.Irrigation
