TALK | Greg Peterson | Water Harvesting in the Desert
Greg Calabrese

Join the founder of the Urban Farm and the author of The Urban Farm's Simple Sustainability Series for a discussion and question and answer session on water harvesting.

Peterson offers concepts integral to both rainwater and "greywater" (or waste water) harvesting, including why you should never store greywater, the difference between active and passive systems, designing ground storage systems, when to use it, when it is safe, which soaps to use, the legal requirements for installing your own systems and why water harvesting is about more than just saving money.
