Come be a part of something bigger, shape the earth to harvest water to build rich soil and nourish a water wise garden, at the Carpinteria Valley Water District offices. Water that falls on the roofs near the front of the offices, on Santa Ynez Ave, will be directed from downspouts into channels and basins that will form the foundation of a beautiful rain garden.
This workshop is free to participants; we ask that you sign up online so we have a good head count. Snacks, a light lunch, drinks, and many tools will be provided. Please bring your pointed shovels, picks and trowels to help with the effort. This will be a social work party that you'll walk away from with ideas and some real skills to implement in your own landscape. Register now
This will be a learning through doing workshop, with additional educational points reviewed during the break and lunch. If you want to learn more about rainwater harvesting within the soil/earthworks before the workshop, here are some helpful links:
