How the trees get water?
We receive water from canal once or twice a month for 4 hours. The water is collected in a reservoir which is 31m broad, 31m long and 7m deep. It collects 6.72 million liters (1.77 million gallon) water to irrigate the land of ca. 35000 sq m (around 9 acre). The collected water is then pumped up by using electricity and supplied to the trees through pipes and sprinklers.
