If you’d like to order a copy of Eat Mesquite! A Cookbook, click here to visit Desert Harvesters’ site. Although you’ll need to pay separately, if you order both the cookbook and one (or both) of Brad’s books, we’ll ship them together and credit you a couple dollars’ refund for shipping costs.


About ordering Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond, Volume 1:

Your signed copy/ies of the book will be mailed to you via U.S. Media Mail (domestic orders) or International First Class/Priority (depending on the package weight of international orders), typically within 3–4 business days of receipt of your order and payment. While we don’t typically send emails confirming receipt of your order, if you pay via PayPal you will get notice via their system after your order ships. If you send your payment through the mail, if you include your email address on the order form, we will likewise send you a note when your order has shipped. You can always send an email to admin@harvestingrainwater.com if you’d like to inquire about the status of your order.

If you live in the continental United States and do not receive your order within 3 weeks, or if you live in AK or HI or outside the United States and do not receive your order within 5 weeks, please email us.

By ordering your books on this site or through us by mail, you are directly supporting the author and his self-publishing house, Rainsource Press, which cycles the highest percentage of your money into our efforts to forward sustainable strategies such as rainwater harvesting and our Regenerative Fund.

Another way we increase the benefit of your direct order involves the permaculture ethic of people care, by having your book orders picked, packed, and shipped by the Beacon Group, a Tucson-local nonprofit that provides a large crew of otherly-abled individuals with “a variety of employment-related programs, … education, and socialization … to [help them] lead meaningful, productive lives.” To this is added the ethic of earth care, as Beacon Group also runs a recycling center from which, whenever possible, they reuse boxes and packing materials to pack and ship orders. We still receive your orders, oversee their processing, and provide assistance with any related questions—so email us with any and all questions about your order.
