Learn to Install Your Own Greywater System!

When you wash your clothes or take a shower, 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 both their own “Laundry to Landscape” greywater system and a simple "Branched Drain" greywater system from a household shower. Learn how easy it is to use the both a washing machine and shower 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.

Expert Instruction

No previous experience with plumbing required. All tools will be provided for your use during the class. Taught by Brook Sarson of Catching H20

Brook started her rainwater and greywater harvesting business in 2008 with the mission to be a resource to the San Diego Community for water harvesting. She was determined to create change from the ground up by showing homeowners, educators, and policy makers how simple and effective rainwater harvesting and greywater recycling can be. Her continued mantra has been that individual contributions create tremendous impact toward a larger water conservation strategy.
