“Unpluggin’ from the water grid.” Interesting expression. Kinda like unpluggin’ from the matrix of all kinds. All these things that we’ve grown use to and now out participation may involve waste, destruction or other kinds of violence on ourselves, others and the planet. Worked with students on a Water Crisis unit in the spring towards the end of the year. I was learnin’ right along side them. So many things that we are doin’ that no longer (if they ever did) serving the collective good. I’m glad to see folks are workin’ it out (and I’m sure have been workin’ it out) to offer, teach and give us alternative ways of living. I’m sure this kinda thing has always been around, ages even…only waking up to it now…oooooh, i better wake up!

Interested in reusing your greywater? Want to learn more about it and how to build your own system? Come to our design workshop. We’ll present you with information on the most common, low-tech, low-cost, effective, residential greywater systems. Then we’ll break into groups and help you plan a system for your own home. Participants will be emailed a greywater planning sheet, that you’ll fill out and bring to the workshop. We’ll also look at an existing greywater system from a washing machine and do an “upgrade” so you’ll get some hands-on practice too!


Saturday, July 26: Hands-On Greywater Workshop
Time: 11am- 3pm
Location: Carlsbad, north of San Diego. (Once registered you’ll be emailed directions.)
Cost: $20-40

Workshop will include a presentation on greywater reuse, the design process of the system we’ll be building, and the construction of a greywater system from the washing machine to ornamental plants. Activities will involve digging, measuring, cutting pipes, observing, and more!
