Good video on at home food production.
I am have saw this video about an Austrian Farmer Sepp Holzer who has done a very good job integrating water into his farm on the side of a mountain:http://video.google.com/videosearch?client=safari&rls=en&q=ountain%20video&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wv#q=austrian+farmer+mountain+water&hl=en&emb=0&client=safari
Does anyone know of any similar properties using water in this way? 
Does anyone have examples of people using renewable energy, wind, solar, or other to pump water higher for storage of energy? How could such a model help to replenish upper ponds? 
I have also heard of an Australian fella, a horse breeder, and eco designer who can read water and the land cannot find the video on him though.
One of the big arguments that is used about renewable energy is that it is too difficult to store.
Just looking for some novel uses of water!
Thank you,Doug CasimelSaskatchewan, Canada
