It's dry out there, and few other issues have been as historically important in arid regions as water, and no single issue will be more important in the future; it is becoming paramount to treat water with care and skill. In this workshop we will learn the skills necessary to effectively make use of rainwater in the home landscape. The workshop will be comprehensive in the varied methods of rainwater harvesting. We will focus on water harvesting earthworks as the most effective place to catch and store water, while also learning about cistern systems, plant ecologies, Colorado specific legalities, and other rainwater related issues. The skills learned will be directly applicable to the participants’ home landscape. Come explore the soggy, spongy oasis of rainwater harvesting! This workshop will include a visit to mature water harvesting gardens in Boulder.
Instructor: Jason Gerhardt, is a permaculture designer who has been practicing rainwater harvesting for about a decade from Arizona to Colorado. He has built numerous water harvesting gardens in Boulder annually for the last five years. He wants you to have the knowledge in your own hands so we can all drought proof our landscapes.
