Water Harvesting Workshop - CRANBROOK

 Registration is closed for this event
It is no secret that we experienced rampant water restrictions and many smoky days this summer. Scientific predictions point towards more dry summers meaning now more than ever we have to be water responsible. Join one of Canada’s top permaculture educators, Rob Avis, for this workshop and explore capturing rainwater and other water harvesting strategies.

 

This 3 hr workshop will pack in many of the key components of water harvesting. You will discover how to ‘plant the water’ and we will explore how to capture rainwater from roofs and other surfaces. In-ground water harvesting strategies, passive water storage and active storage will be discussed. You’ll also get a hands-on demo in building a water-harvesting system with simple tools that you can create for a few dollars with materials from your local hardware store.
