Greywater: Laundry-to-Landscape
When you wash your clothes, 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 larger landscape plants. Recycle the washing machine water to irrigate your yard with this permit-free legal method of greywater reuse. In this class participants will learn about the basics of greywater and guidelines on how to install their own “Laundry to Landscape” greywater system by doing hands-on assembly of the L2L hardware parts . This class will include a power-point presentation and handouts related to greywater design to help you further setup up your own system. Instructor: Christina Bertea is a union trained licensed Plumbing Contractor whose pipework veered toward sustainability about 8 years ago when she started working with the (then) Greywater Guerrilas, teaching “pre-legal” systems. The codes caught up with them in 2009 (they were in Sacramento helping craft them) so they morphed into the respectable Greywater Action, still teaching folks to install their own simple lo-cost, lo-tech greywater systems, rainwater systems, and encouraging the use of composting toilets and urine harvesting for fertilizer. Christina also makes eco-art related to water, is on the board of Women Eco Artists Dialog (WEAD), built a passive solar rammed earth house in Oakland in ’94. She is currently enchanted with all things permaculture– and vortexes! Price $40 Register at www.biofueloasis.com/workshops
