Last year we teamed up with the SATX Permaculture group to plan a Perma-blitz.  A Perma-blitz is a way to work at a designated site to improve the area with permaculture design and inviting folks to participate in the building process to get hands on learning of how to implement these designs.  We spent close to 6 months working on a overall layout of the full garden space and then focused on several small projects we could do that day.  The group chose to work on a patio for the outdoor kitchen area, a berm and swale on the backside of the landscape and a pond.  I'll be the first to admit I didn't know much about ponds let alone how to design and execute one here.  Several members of the group had previous pond experience and helped guide this project through.   It only took about 15-20 people, two days to hand dig the two foot deep pond.  So with some guidance of online resources, those with experience, and help from friends, I feel like this project can be achievable for many folks...
