TECHNIQUES & STRATEGIES #1: Water Harvesting in a Mediterranean Climate
We’ve focused the last few months learning about the permaculture design process and some of the methods involved in creating a regenerative design, now we explore specific techniques and strategies for design implementation.

  • Water, drought and our local climate
  • How water harvesting techniques have the potential to rehydrate landscapes
  • Water harvesting systems including tank collection from rooftops and different types of earthworks
  • 2 different methods for calculating the volume of rainwater harvested from rooftops and other surfaces
  • Laundry to landscape greywater systems and local code


  • Please bring a small dish to share as well as your own dishes, utensils and cup for the POTLUCK. There are limited dishes available in the library so please remember to bring your own if you can. If you do use library dishes we ask that you wash them when you are done.
  • If you have anything in SURPLUS (vegetables, home preserved food, eggs, fruit, seed, plant starts etc.) please bring it along and we’ll ‘Share the Surplus’ after the Potluck.
