Abstract: The use and maintenance of water resources constitute an aggregation problem that must be solved to improve the agricultural production and environment of Taiwan. The purpose of this study was to develop a water resource recycling system that promotes the development of sustainable farms. First, we established a research base by reviewing literature related to "permaculture", "green building", and "irrigation and drainage engineering". We then combined empirical research to explore domestic sustainable farms and establish a suitable model for water resource use. We formulated a new agricultural concept that involves avoiding the use of pesticides and emphasizes natural farming and integrating environmental water resources, thus revitalizing agriculture through permaculture. We subsequently analyzed empirical case studies on landform, climate, soil, and hydrologic characteristics as well as the animals and plants that can be used as land resources according to regional features to determine the content of local water resources. We then estimated the water demand of main agricultural activities, including the water consumption of farmhouses, unit agricultural productivity, and the drainage discharge and water retention of farms. Finally, we constructed rainwater collection facilities and a water recycling system. The results, which satisfy the permaculture concept of energy cycling and the green building concept of carbon dioxide reduction, can be used to develop water resource recycling systems that facilitate the development of sustainable farms. The proposed model for water resource use serves as a valuable reference for the design of sustainable farms in the future.
