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 landscape plants, getting your clothes and your conscience clean at the same time! This hands-on workshop will teach and inspire participants to install their own “Laundry to Landscape” greywater system. Learn how easy it is to use the washing machine to irrigate fruit trees and more with this cheap, easy, and permit-free legal method of greywater reuse. By the end of the day, participants will be able to design and install their own laundry to landscape greywater system with confidence. Cut down your water bill and grow an ecological and food producing garden. This class includes many handouts related to greywater design to help you further setup up your own system. Class will address:
- Greywater design for laundry systems
- Mulch basin and soil perk
- Greywater compatible soaps and detergents
- Greywater specific parts and tools
- Fruit and nut trees for greywater
All proceeds go towards continued offerings of rainwater and greywater classes. Take part in the Great Greywater Challenge by enrolling in this hands-on workshop. Workshop fee is on a sliding scale.
Classes are held on private residences.
