Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond by Brad Lancaster

Wind & Snow Harvesting

Snow harvesting snow. A diversion berm of snow directs snow-melt flowing down the street into a rain garden in adjoining yard. Flagstaff, Arizona.

The rain garden full of water (melted snow).

Barbed wire fence on Diné lands in northern Arizona slows the wind enough for tumbleweed to drop out of the wind flow and accumulate.
In this case the fence is acting as a biomass/mulch harvester. In winter the same process enables the fence to act as a wind-borne snow harvester.
