Sign up for our EcoHouse tour 11/14

On Sunday November 14, come learn about rainwater catchment, greywater, and Earthworks at the EcoHouse!

EcoHouse features the first permitted residential constructed wetland/greywater system in the State of California, and the first permitted greywater system in Berkeley. Come learn about the┬áprinciples and process of safely irrigating with shower, bathroom sink, and laundry waste water. The presentation will include an explanation of greywater design and the application process. We’ll touch on the basics of how to collect rainwater from your house and store it in cisterns or directly in your garden. Earthworks such as berms, basins, french drains, swales and diversion drains can also help offset your need for irrigation and minimize your water use in the summer as well as build soil fertility and stabilize soils. Return home with ideas and plans of your own! Click here for more details, and for instructions on how to register.
