Rainwater Harvesting for Urban Gardeners
Josh Briggs will be speaking to the club about rainwater harvesting. This talk will focus on small scale rainwater harvesting systems appropriate for urban gardeners, from simple gravity systems to more sophisticated systems with pumps, controls and monitoring elements. Josh will briefly cover basic design principles, materials, and construction techniques for durable, low-maintenance rainwater harvesting systems. Josh will also touch on recent local projects he has designed and built featuring solar-powered pump systems, rainwater sheds, and bicycle powered water pumps.
