Small plots will be used as cultivation area, making the management easier andusing drip irrigation systems. The orientation will be North-South, in a flatcultivated surface or with a gentle slope in order to help the water evacuation.This water could be reused for irrigation proposes. The plots can be delimitedwith bricks, wood or not and other kind of small and natural fences; and filledwith compost, peat, topsoil.
