Rain Water Harvesting Workshop at the Desert Museum

Saturday, April 14 at 8:00 am (PT)

Did you realize that by harvesting water in a well-mulched depression, you can keep that moisture in the soil for up to two months? Learn how to redirect rainwater from problem areas into vegetated basins and into cisterns. Calculate how much water can be captured off of your roof or carport. Sonya Norman shows you inexpensive solutions as well as pricey/showy ones. Learn about weed control, tax incentives and the City’s code regarding planting, cutting curbs and harvesting in the right of way. Includes site visits and a lecture; mid-town location. After registering for this class you will be informed of the location.
