Desert Green XXV

September 30 - October 1

The theme of the conference is ReGen: Success in a Changing World

Brad Lancaster will be giving the following keynote presentations:


Plant Your Free On-site Waters to Grow Abundance
By Brad Lancaster author of Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond,

This presentation shows us how we can collaborate with thriving living systems watered solely by free on-site waters such as rainwater, stormwater, greywater, and air-conditioning condensate. Dynamic results include passive cooling, big savings of money and resources, flood control, water resiliency, climate change mitigation, and greater health and beauty. Best of all, it’s about just more consciously using and re-cycling what you already have freely at hand.


Re-hydrating and Re-enlivening Our Communities with Rain-watered Neighborhood Food Forestry
By Brad Lancaster, author of Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond,
HarvestingRainwater.com & NeighborhoodForesters.org

 This presentation is about efforts empowering citizens to effectively plant the rain and native food-bearing vegetation to grow vibrant and resilient abundance where they live, work, and play. Dramatic results include cooler neighborhoods, healthier eating, a revitalization of indigenous cuisine, deeper connections with people and place, reduced flooding, skill building, greater soil fertility, and more beauty and joy. The strategies and practices are accessible to all and most are free or cost no more than the price of a shovel.


Brad will also have the new, full-color editions of his books on hand for sale direct from him at deep discount. And Brad will be available to sign your books if desired.

The Umbrella: Summer 2020

THE UMBRELLA: A catch-all of resources, events, media, and more from Brad Lancaster In this time of Covid-19 and spending more time at home to be safe, I’ve been grateful for the solace, inspiration, and bountiful sustenance my water-harvesting gardens, landscape, and neighborhood forest has provided me, my family, friends, and neighbors.
