This two day workshop is a unique opportunity for homeowners and skilled professionals including landscapers, plumbers, contractors and builders to learn how to create simple, affordable, effective water conservation strategies.   This is also a great opportunity if you are interested in joining the CatchingH2O/H2OME team, since we are looking for motivated team members with great energy!   

DId you know that 65-75% of our residential water use is in our landscapes.  By rerouting rainwater from storm drains and greywater from our wastewater treatment facilities to our landscapes we can drastically reduce water consumption throughout San Diego!  

Greywater use can be very simple and cost-effective when passive strategies are used.  But what are the permitting requirements and best practices around these strategies?  We will not only tell you, we will show you in this effective hands-on workshop!

Topics to be covered including hands-on installation:

  • Designing and installing water harvesting earthworks.

  • Fruit tree planting, selection, and care
  • Gravity fed shower and other sources, branched drain greywater system
  • Permitting requirements and variations throughout San Diego

  • No permit required Laundry-to-Landscape system

  • How to improve onsite water retention using soil, earthworks, basins, and plants to accentuate your active water harvesting strategies. 

  • Rainwater harvesting theory and Hands-On installation of 3000 gallons
