Looking at Drip Irrigation

I’m working on a new permaculture design for my home and one of the important elements is drip irrigation. My goal is to eventually make the garden irrigation-free by adding organic matter to the soil that will retain moisture and prevent evaporation. This is a big and important goal for a garden in the high desert! The first couple of years will require irrigation though and a drip line seems like the most practical way to go.

Here’s a few resources for drip line supplies so far:

It’s important that the plastic be non-toxic, so NO vinyl tubing shall be used!
