Laundry to Landscape Workshop

The San Diego Sustainable Living Institute presents:

Laundry to Landscape Workshop

Saturday, Dec 8th 11am

Cost is Donation/Sliding Scale $25-$100

Registration is done here

When you wash your clothes, do you know where that water goes? Rather than letting this abundant resource go “down the drain” you can tap into it to sustainably irrigate your fruit trees and other landscape plants, getting your clothes and your conscience clean at the same time!

This hands-on workshop will teach and inspire participants to install their own “Laundry to Landscape” greywater system.Learn how easy it is to use the washing machine to irrigate fruit trees and more with this cheap, easy, and permit-free legal method of greywater reuse. By the end of the day, participants will be able to design and install their own laundry to landscape greywater system with confidence. Cut down your water bill and grow an ecological and food producing garden. This class includes many handouts related to greywater design to help you further setup up your own system. Class will address:

  • Greywater design for laundry systems
  • Mulch basin and soil perk
  • Greywater compatible soaps and detergents
  • Greywater specific parts and tools
  • Fruit and nut trees for greywater

Class cost is on donation. Feel free to give what you can and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Suggested donation of $35-100. All proceeds go towards continued offerings of rainwater and greywater classes.

    Looks good! We just got our pipes set up so that we can route the laundry water to the backyard, but we'll be out of town that day. Hopefully we can make it the next time around.
