"Greywater: 101" with Patrick Loderhose
Saturday, Sept 30th, 10:45 am
Greywater, water from sinks, showers, and washing machines, is a great source of irrigation and can greatly reduce your outdoor water use. Greywater systems are especially important in times of drought. Come learn about popular greywater systems, design considerations, water saving potential, costs, regulations, health and safety, soaps and products, and how to choose a system that is a good match for your home and landscape.
"Building Bridges With City Infrastructure" with Jake Harris
Saturday, Sept 30th, 2 pm
Stone Soup Gardens is a whole systems permaculture-based design and build company in Seattle. We work with community and city collaborators creating awesome Urban Farms, and Stormwater Management systems. Join us as we share our experiences working with Alley Cat Acres and the Department of Transportation on turning a city designated street into a food bank farm, collaborating with World Relief and the City of Kent on turning 2 acres of parking lot into a community farm for refugees that will filter rain runoff, and our ongoing work with Seattle Public Utilities Rain Wise Program installing edible rain gardens and cisterns aiding in cleaning our watershed. Owner Jake Harris is looking forward to sharing a conversation about our successes and challenges in creating public permaculture connections.
