Drought proofing your garden is a puzzle with many pieces. This workshop will put the pieces together, from greywater to mulch and from rainwater catchment to bio-swales. Discover the phenomenon of “slow water” and how to teach water to walk through the landscape. Learn the basics of a “laundry to landscape” greywater system, do-it-yourself rainwater catchments, and sophisticated rainwater irrigation systems. The session will also include information about water-conserving strategies like wicking garden beds and hugelkultur’s high mounded beds. Learn a variety of strategies and techniques you can use to help your landscape and garden withstand drought.
