December 12, 2019

Presentation & Booksigning with Brad Lancaster Phoenix, AZ

When: 7pm, Thursday, January 16, 2020

Where: Changing Hands Bookstore, 300 West Camelback Road, Phoenix, AZ 85013

Join Brad Lancaster as he shares inexpensive, and highly effective, strategies that make the most of free on-site resources—such as the harvest of rainwater, storm water, greywater, air conditioning condensate, and more.

These waters can then be used to freely irrigate cooling, flood-controlling food forests. Learn of efforts that have enriched southwestern communities, ecosystems, and palates—and how you can likewise enrich the community where you live. All can be implemented at home, in your landscape, your neighborhood and beyond.

Stories and highlights from the newly revised, full-color editions of Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond Volumes 1 and 2 by Brad Lancaster and Eat Mesquite and More: A Cookbook for Sonoran Desert Foods and Living by Desert Harvesters will be featured.
