South Park Water Harvesting Bike Tour

IMG_3594Join us for a fun and informative foray around South Park to meet with homeowners who have installed rainwater harvesting or greywater systems in their homes.  This is a great way to see how easy it is to be a part of the water solution and the variety of ways that water can be harvested.  During this easy paced bike tour, you will see both professionally installed and do-it-yourself applications.  If you are curious about how to harvest either rainwater or greywater this is your opportunity to meet with many different people all working to create a water abundant “blue” future.  Rainwater harvesting and greywater reuse can reduce a household’s water consumption by over 50 percent.

The bike ride will meet at Olive Branch Green Building Supply at 3030 North Park Way and will stop at 5-7 houses to learn from their experiences.  The bike tour will culminate in a hands-on laundry to landscape greywater workshop.

Celebrate Earthday with learning about actual solutions to water abundance in San Diego!
