Hands-On Laundry Greywater Installation Workshop

  • Address to be given upon RSVP Del Cerro San Diego, CA 92120 (map)

When you wash your clothes, do you know where that water goes?  Rather than letting this abundant resource go “down the drain” you can tap into it to sustainably irrigate your fruit trees and other landscape plants, getting your clothes and your conscience clean at the same time!  This hands-on workshop will teach and inspire participants to install their own “Laundry to Landscape” greywater system. Learn how easy it is to use the washing machine to irrigate fruit trees and more with this low cost, easy, and permit-free legal method of greywater reuse. By the end of the day, participants will be able to design and install their own laundry to landscape greywater system with confidence. Cut down your water bill and grow an ecological and food producing garden. 

We are excited to host this Greywater Workshop with Ben Kotnik with California Rare Fruit Growers! Not only will you learn how to install a Laundry Greywater System from start to finish, but you will have access to one of San Diego’s foremost experts on growing fruit trees in San Diego. You will see well established trees, and even have an opportunity to procure your own.

Morning refreshments will be provided by host.

Class will address:

  • Greywater design for laundry systems

  • Mulch basin and soil perk

  • Greywater compatible soaps and detergents

  • Greywater specific parts and tools
