Livelihood of Our Garden

Natches-Selah Irrigation Canal
Heather Heights, Selah, WA

Only a 10 minute walk from the house will bring us to our irrigation canal. It is one of the last open areas in existence. Built in the late 1800’s, it has served the area well for many years. As time has passed, there is a need to maintain lower water loss and better control the amount of water released from the ditch to the various areas. Soon it will be replaced by a pipeline. What a loss to progress!

This is just one of the many places around our home to explore. Oh, how I wish I were a kid again!

Without this source of water, our Heatherwood garden would be just a dream.
