Rainwater Harvesting: Make Every Drop Count

March 30 @ 10:00 am EST - 12:00 pm EST

26$ - 32$

Water simultaneously manages to be the stuff of mystery and our daily routine.   We use it to cook with, wash our dishes, and brush our teeth but very few can stand on the beach and not lose themselves watching the breakers roll in.

In the face of climate change water is becoming much more of an issue, we either have too much too little and never when we really need it. Water bans, flooding and erosion are common now and it feels as if this life giving resource has turned against us.

Get reacquainted with water and learn simple methods to capture and reuse storm water or slow storm water runoff. We will discuss rain harvesting and rain gardens as ways to make the most of every drop.

Trevor Smith is the owner of Land Escapes, a full service ecological landscaping company in the Boston area that specializes in Garden Design, Eco-Rain Recovery, Water Features, and Living Wall Installations.
