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. DId you know the City of San Diego is offering up to $250 in rebates for this system?
This workshop is hosted at a site that has existing rainwater harvesting systems, both rainwater storage tanks and earthworks that now have a mature native plant ecology in place.
Morning refreshments will be provided by host.
