Learn rain and greywater harvesting from the expert – author Brad Lancaster. Learn how to create simple, low-maintenance, legal, and effective household greywater harvesting systems that use gravity to direct greywater directly into the landscape (no stinky tanks) where it passively irrigates landscape plantings. This can greatly lower water consumption and water bills, while enhancing and beautifying your yard. We will discuss how to create greywater systems, greywater-harvesting guidelines, materials and suppliers, greywater-appropriate soaps and detergents, marrying greywater and rainwater-harvesting earthworks, and how to maximize your greywater-irrigated landscape’s potential with passive solar design, food production, and oasis design. We will also discuss tax rebates for rainwater and greywater-harvesting systems, and view a slide show of different greywater systems. We will also design and install two greywater systems at Dolce Verde (2017 N Laurel Ave, 85007) in Central Phoenix, giving you hands on experience so that you can install one yourself. Don’t miss this chance.
