Green Foundation Ireland hosted a talk on Ponds for Farms and Communities, Step by Step which took place online on 23 January 2023. In this talk FÉIDHLIM HARTY of FH Wetland Systems gives an overview of pond design and construction to help landowners and local communities create new ponds. Ponds provide valuable habitat for wildlife as well as beautiful areas to walk near and watch nature. We explore siting, sizing, shape, edge slope, depth and aftercare; looking at the steps needed to get from discussing the initial idea through to design, construction and finish.
We would like to thank Claire Downey for recording and editing the video for us.
