The land lies in a low lying area and it usually gets flooded during rainy season. So, we came up with an idea to create a water cachement so as to reduce the flooding in other areas. A pond is a good idea. It adds a great diversity to the place. Once the place has Lilly and Lotus plants, it will have an amazing look. Growing fish is also on the plans. More than for consumption, they will add to the diversity of fauna in the farm.
At our village, we can hire out Earth Moving machines ( better known as JCB) and its fairly easy to dig out a big pond. In under two days, this work could get done. However, we may not get started with the pond for the next six months. The focus is on getting the farm house ready and planting the trees.
