Who lives here - Deb and her dog Molly
Aim of the blitz - Build a mini swale to allow water into the dry-as-a-bone soil profile.
Project details - Mark out on-contour mini swale, fill in rabbit holes and pull out weeds.
Challenges faced - Deb had to leave for fire station dutires and the remaining blitzers were left leaderless, so only one swale was finished.
Achieved on the day - Dug out a ditch and using the soil to build a berm making a swale 20 metres long.
Follow up - When the next lot of rain fell the swale caught and slowed down the water running off the hill allowing it to soak into the ground.
