April 29 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$40.00
Get ready for a fun hands-on workshop that will give you all the information and experience you need to install a system to repurpose and redirect wastewater for landscape and garden irrigation.
This is a two part class with a morning lecture and an afternoon devoted to a hands on installation of a laundry to landscape gray-water system at a local residence.
