Barbara Wishingrad of Sweetwater Collaborative will give a talk about Rainwater Harvesting at the Carpinteria Community Garden Park, 4855 5th St, Carpinteria, CA 93013, on Saturday, October 20, from 2:00-3:30 pm. This will be an outdoor talk without a slide show- we will walk around the garden and look at rainwater harvesting practices and opportunities, and Barbara will share some ideas for making rainwater harvesting more productive and efficient in any setting. We will also touch on benefits of rainwater harvesting including increased infiltration of water and carbon sequestration in the soil.
Suggested donation for the class is $10 per person; nobody will be turned away for lack of funds.
Barbara is bilingual Spanish- English so Spanish speakers are encouraged to attend.
Located at the base of Linden Avenue, the garden is an attractive and abundant space for community members to grow their own produce. The garden is also an outdoor classroom for Carpinterians of all ages, with lectures, workshops, and public events dedicated to promoting organic gardening, healthy eating, and sustainability.
See you there and please spread the word!
