Rainwater Harvesting 101

July 23
6:00 pm
- 8:00 pm


As climates shift on a global and local scale, designing our living and ecological spaces for resilience is key. In this course, we will focus on the capacity to harvest rainwater in the soil using principles of slow, sink, and spread. We will work together around a site example to better understand the concepts and share resources on how to adapt the concepts for the spaces where you interact. This will function as an introductory course outlining concepts through participatory learning and action; creating a space of communal learning and guidance for further learning.

The concepts shared will emphasize methods that can be done with shovels, seeds, and a calculator. While larger-scale design is beneficial, we will begin with the spaces that we most interact with around our homes.
