    Greywater Recycling Systems: A Hands-on Installation Workshop | $
    9:00 am - 4:00 pm

    With our warmest months approaching it’s a great time to plan for ways to water your landscaping or garden as efficiently as possible. This class gives participants information about how to use, re-purpose and redirect your laundry wastewater for landscape and garden irrigation, and get hands-on experience installing a system in a residential setting.

    The first half of the day covers code requirements, greywater compatible products and plants, greywater parts and materials identification, how to calculate irrigation field size and plant water requirements, how to construct a mulch basin, how to create a design for your system, and ultimately how to maintain your greywater system.

    After a one hour lunch break we will travel to the workshop installation site, a local resident/volunteer’s home complete an installation. Directions to site are given in class.

    Don’t forget to bring a lunch, sunscreen & a water bottle!

    Please note: The workshop starts at 9 am, but please arrive by 8:45 am to check in!

    Hands-on installation demonstration will be from 1-4 pm
