Trilogy Speaks: Water Harvesting For Water Resilience With Brook Sarson

April 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Many of us in San Diego don’t know where our water comes from. During this conversation we will discuss how to better understand how you can feel empowered to not only enhance your own water resources in the face of an uncertain water future, but also the resilience of your neighborhood and our ecological communities including the ocean and the waterways that feed it.

Using passive and active rainwater harvesting and relying on greywater for our landscape irrigation means we use less energy, create more beautiful and nurturing landscapes, and keep our waterways clean while reducing flooding during rain events. More climate appropriate plants mean healthier soils which means reducing carbon emissions and even sequestering carbon!

We all need water to live! Let’s nurture and value our relationship with it now.

-Over 600 gallons falls on a 1000 square foot roof when it rains. Let’s design our rainwater storage well
– Rainwater is a great resource for growing food! Plants much prefer it to city water resources
– greywater is gently used shower/laundry water. Get 2 uses out of the water you paid for by routing it out to your landscape
– “saving water” doesn’t mean you need to have a boring and arid landscape. We need trees, plants for pollinators, and to grow food in our community
