Join us for "Turn Water Scarcity into Abundance by Planting the Rain," a presentation by Brad Lancaster, author of the just released and revised full-color editions of Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond, Volumes 1 and 2 and co-author of Eat Mesquite and More: A Cookbook for Sonoran Desert Foods and Living.
Learn how to easily and joyfully harvest free on-site waters such as rain, stormwater, greywater, air conditioning condensate to grow wild food forests, living air conditioners, and more!
These waters can then be used to freely irrigate cooling, flood-controlling food forests. Learn of efforts that have enriched southwestern communities,ecosystems, and palates—and how you can likewise enrich the community where you live. All can be implemented at home, in your landscape, your neighborhood and beyond.
Stories and highlights from the newly revised, full-color editions of Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond Volumes 1 and 2 and Eat Mesquite and More: A Cookbook for Sonoran Desert Foods and Living will be featured.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
- Don't want to drive? Take the Light Rail! It lets off at the Central Avenue/Camelback Park-and-Ride, which has hundreds of free parking spaces across the street from Changing Hands.
Brad Lancaster thrives on the harvest of free on-site waters, harvesting 100,000 gallons annually on he and his brother's oasis-like 1/8th-acre urban lot and surrounding public right-of-way in Tucson, Arizona. And he has helped tens of thousands of other people along with cities, water departments, and agricultural services around the world to similarly plant the rain to give back more water than we take in a way that mitigates both drought and flooding.
