Water Harvesting Open House
Saturday, March 20, 2010 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Come see water harvesting in action! Guided by Water Harvesting Professional and Permaculturist, Brook Sarson, you'll see how a 1320 gallon rainwater tank combined with laundry greywater and bath greywater work together to grow a garden of edibles using only 1/4 of the water that most San Diegans use each day.
As you tour this urban farm setting, you'll see natural building techniques including a cob chicken coop, decorative benches as well as an earth pizza oven. Brook will be on-hand to talk to you about solutions for your space and how you can make a difference during San Diego's water crisis and beyond.
There will be a tour starting at about 10:30 and another one around 12:30 where you learn about simple greywater systems, do-it-yourself options, rainwater-harvesting systems, resources, or you can schedule an appointment with Brook to assess greywater opportunities at your site. Suggested donation of $5 will go toward supporting water activism in San Diego. Please RSVP to Brook at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 619.964.4838 and I will give you the address.
