After 4 attempts Rawbert struck water! I got to help him put on the finishing touches to his new found water source for his vegan fruit homestead (Fruitstead). He goes over the process and what he found to be the best ways for where he was located(Southwest Florida). He can now be that much closer to being completely self sufficient. I learned a lot from hanging out with Rawbert and would of never thought I would think it would be possible to hand drill your own well. Glad I was proven wrong, because this saved him $3,000 if he had a company come out to drill it for him.
He plans on adding a Solar Electric pump to bring the water up from the well and into a reservoir. Also plans to get couple more on his property to help with watering the future Food Jungle he is designing. All I know is I cannot wait until I get back down there to check out how everything has come along when I am back in the area.
