Monsoonal Weather Event
Jan 18, 2023
We have experienced a monsoonal weather event in recent days at Eden Lassie Farm, resulting in significant rainfall of 470 mm. This is not unusual for this time of year given our location in the tropics and substantial rain events are something we plan for.
Although the creeks, gullies and drains running through the farm have carried a large volume of water, the water management and drainage strategy that we have employed on the farm has been successful in protecting our established agave plants. Maintaining vegetation coverage on the soil throughout the farm has protected the soil, slowed water movement across the farm and minimised erosion.
As the rain clears and access to all parts of the farm becomes easier, we will undertake further reviews, but initial inspections have been positive, and we are pleased with how the plants and drainage systems have handled this significant weather event.
