Classes in Greywater and Rainwater Harvesting Basics, Site Assessment and Water Wise Landscape Maintenance

The purpose of the classes is to give basic information about greywater reuse, rainwater harvesting in the soil or tanks, how to assess a site for the potential of becoming more water wise, and how to take care of a water wise landscape once you have put it in. Classes are geared  to the general public. Anyone is welcome. Suggested donation: $10/person or $15/couple; howver, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.  We invite participants to come with questions about their specific projects or proposed projects, so that we have real life examples of the principles and practices behind these sustainable systems.  Classes on each topic currently meet for an hour and a half once a quarter.

We request that homeowners attend at least one 101 class before or after hosting a workshop at their residence, and that workshop volunteers also attend these classes to get their general questions answered about such systems, so that the hands-on workshops can truly be learning through doing.  However, interested parties unaffiliated with hands-on workshops are also encouraged to attend and will have plenty to learn from the material presented--particularly do-it-yourselfers who want to implement such projects on their own.
