Hands-On Laundry-to-Landscape Installation Workshop

September 26, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Through classroom learning and hands-on experience in the field, this class teaches participants how to install a Laundry-to-Landscape greywater system, which re-purposes waste water to be redirected for landscape and garden irrigation. Classroom Instruction at the first half of the day will cover code requirements, greywater compatible products and plants, greywater parts and materials identification , calculating irrigation field size and plant water requirements, mulch basin construction, creating a design for your system and maintaining your greywater system.

After a one hour lunch break we will travel to the workshop installation site, a local resident/volunteer’s home, to complete an installation. The installation demonstration goes from 1-4 pm.

Class registration fee: $20 before September 14th, $25 after September 14th

Please note: The workshop starts at 9 am, but please arrive by 8:45 am to check in. Please bring a lunch, sunscreen and a water bottle.
