Brad offers local-to-Tucson consultation services, schedule permitting.

PLEASE NOTE: Brad typically does not provide written reports or drawn plans as part of his consultation services; expect a verbal, information-rich, conversational approach. You are encouraged to take your own notes (easy to do on a print out of an aerial image of your site from Google Earth or Google Maps) and make your own sketches (or hire someone with these skills to attend the consultation). If Brad generates a plan – that will be an additional charge.

Brad’s consultation rate for his home community of Tucson is $250 for the first hour and $150 for every subsequent hour; a typical consult takes about 2 hours onsite. Additional preparation and/or follow-up will incur additional fees.

Occasionally Brad is available for out-of-town consultations; please check the events page of the website to see where he currently has plans to be when, and/or inquire for out-of-town rates.

Regardless of your location, if you are interested in pursuing a consultation, Brad strongly recommends (but does not require) that, in order to get the most out of your time with him, you educate yourself in advance by doing as many of the following as possible:

For all consultations (rainwater harvesting, greywater harvesting, permaculture, or integrated sustainable design):

a) Read Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond, Volume 1, 3rd edition

Additional suggestions for a greywater consultation:

a) Check out the Greywater-Harvesting Image Gallery on this website—click on each image to make it larger and to view the caption;

b) Take a look at Volume 2 of his Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond (available through the local library if you don’t own it)—Chapter 12 is specifically on greywater;

c) Take a look at Art Ludwig’s book Create an Oasis with Greywater—the definitive book of its kind; and finally,

d) Think about which possible sources of greywater you would want to tap, and what living things you would want your greywater to feed.
