In the Australian Outback everyone does it. In the Sonoran Desert the rain in vain falls mainly down the drain. See how this bounty is harvested at a housing co-op, on neighborhood streets, in urban homes and in a community garden. Calculate how much water can be collected off of your roof and find out how you can divert and store rainwater. This tour is co-sponsored by the Tucson Botanical Gardens. Brad Lancaster of the Sonoran Permaculture Guild and author of Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond (www.harvestingrainwater.com) is the instructor.

We will begin with a dynamic power point presentation on rainwater harvesting then go visit the sites, carpooling in vans.
