“Turn used water into real savings” — Greywater Harvesting
Jeremai Cann will lead this workshop on how to create your own “greywater” catchment system.  Greywater refers to the reuse of water drained from baths, showers, washing machines, and sinks for irrigation and other water conservation applications.
