Rainwater Harvesting For Healthy Gardens

November 18, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Collecting free water from the sky that your plants just love is amazingly easy to do. In this workshop we teach you how to do some simple calculations that will just amaze you with the amount you can collect in your own yard. We give you techniques you can use with and without gutters around your home. We show you the most cost effective way of storing rainwater on your property – and it’s not where you think! We also share why collecting rainwater in your yard helps protect our oceans and beaches.
