This class is through the Institute of Urban Homesteading.
Saturday July 14, 2-5pm
Instructor: Laura Allen Location:TBA
Water is the unseen, often under-appreciated precious resource that sustains our lives. Because fresh potable water is so vital, the struggle to obtain or maintain access to it is worldwide. Many of us recognize the need to be better informed and make wiser choices with water use, but lack the inspiration or know how to move forward.
This class will include lecture, slideshow, discussion and strategizing. You'll learn about where our water comes from, some of the politics around it and survey the options for using water more wisely in the urban landscape. We'll get inspired by creative uses of greywater, rainwater harvesting, composting toilets, permeable pavements, large scale water remediation projects and communities who brought back their dried up springs and creeks by reshaping the land to catch the rain.
Then we'll assess your water usage and strategize which techniques will be easiest for you to adapt to use your water more wisely. Register on the Institute's site here. http://www.iuhoakland.com/registerform.html
