Level 100 workshops are one-day introduction courses open to anyone interested in learning more about rainwater harvesting in nonpotable applications, such as landscape irrigation. This course will provide an overview of rainwater harvesting history, uses and applicability to conserving rainfall as a natural resource. Concepts and techniques are introduced on harvesting rain for non-potable uses such as landscape irrigation and wildlife management. Demonstrations are conducted to reinforce the concepts learned through rainfall simulations and the use of a simple rainfall harvesting system.
This workshop is offered at the significantly discounted price of $20, thanks to the generous sponsorship of the City of Santa Monica Office of Sustainability and the Environment. Need-based scholarships are available by contacting Neil Shapiro at Neal.Shapiro@SMGOV.NET.
Lunch is not provided, however, food is available at the event and at nearby Santa Monica Place.
