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.


To order Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond, Volume 1 &/or Volume 2, first choose and click your payment method for ordering instructions:

1. PayPal
2. U.S. Mail

Your signed copy/ies of the book(s) 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. We don’t automatically send out confirmation emails, but 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, 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.


Australia/New Zealand customers: Save yourself the international postage and order Volume 1 (2008) and Volume 2 (2008) through the Permaculture Research Institute’s web store.
