Introduction to Landscape Rainwater Harvesting

CRSP Institute for Urban Eco-Villages
Hands-On Urban Permaculture Workshop Series
Introduction to Landscape Rainwater Harvesting
with Joe Linton
Saturday June 14th 9am-3pm
Los Angeles Eco-Village, 117 Bimini Place, L.A. 90004
Cost $35
Workshop size limited, pre-registration required
Call (213) 738-1254 or email crsp@igc.org

The course includes: an overview presentation on Los Angeles water issues, including local multi-benefit watershed management efforts, a tour of Los Angeles Eco-Village rainwater harvesting landscape features, and a hands-on workshop to build terraced swales to detain and infiltrate water.

Who should attend: folks interested in water sustainability and/or watershed restoration, gardeners, folks interested in creating small-scale water-harvesting earthworks.

Note: This course focuses on building earthworks that gather and infiltrate rainwater in the landscape. It does not cover rainwater harvesting with cisterns, which we anticipate will be the subject of a future workshop, hopefully in early fall 2008.
