Curbside capture of desert rain

Listen to this podcast by Living on Earth, National Public Radio’s Environmental News Magazine, on how our Dunbar/Spring neighborhood, and its Neighborhood Foresters, harvest over a million gallons per year of stormwater from our streets to freely irrigate the native food forests we plant and steward, which shade and cool our streets and public walkways & bikeways. And how you could do the same or better.
