This was posted today:
Yesterday we were able to successfully install a greywater system to handle the kitchens waste water at Zuccotti Park and to act as a a catalyst for permaculture solutions! (not to mention a permie meeting spot amongst the crowd)

Sunnie and I were able to connect with Adam, a greywater geek who has been living in the Gownanus Canal in an Zero- Waste boat that is a part of the Boatel.

Lucky for us he used super lite lava rock for his cells and that made it much easier to transport. We made a bio-filter to separate out the small chunks of food and oils from the soapy water out of a 50 gallon drum and wood chips and was able to pull our truck up in between two NBC vans and EE and the kitchen crew helped us unload in 2 minutes flat!

With some small tweaks the system is up and running! It is truly inspiring to see hundreds of different people stopping by and learning how it works and visioning a new economy with a regenerative infrastructure.

Today we are starting the free permaculture workshop series: making seed balls and using the base map generated by the New York Times to create a village.

If you are called to come down please do! We need people to help us set up some nuts and bolts systems- compost, recycling, and to continue with the free schools and to keep this going!
