Keyline Design, as developed by P.O Yeomens, is a way of managing land to work with the natural flow of water in the landscape to benefit and promote the healthiest ecosystem. The design involves a package of techniques for assessing a total land tract and then constructing wetlands, irrigation, roads, and plantings through a holistic lens. Its use is widely applicable in agricultural methods such as permaculture and silvopasture. In this workshop, John Henry Nelson will discuss the history and application of Keyline design, and participants will learn to understand principles with the eventual goal of being able to implement tenets of Keyline design, if not the entire management strategy, on their own properties.
