April 29, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


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.

Don’t forget to bring a lunch, sunscreen, and a water bottle! You may also want to bring/wear a hat, clothes you can get dirty in, and gloves.
