Hands On: Rainwater Catchment


Learn to capture, hold, and gravity feed this precious resource of potable distilled soft water falling from the skies as we install a 1550 gallon rain tank beside the old “seasons barn” with permaculture designer and educator Andrew Faust from the Center for Bioregional Living.

Having multiple back-ups for single essential functions is a core principle of Permaculture. Rain tanks help to limit your use of fossil fuels and give true water independence.

Did you know? The Hudson Valley receives an average of 41.9″ of rainfall annually. With 2-4 inches to be harvested monthly, rainwater catchment is key to water security in your home and community!

Please dress for the weather with sturdy footwear (waterproof if you have them) and bring work gloves and a picnic lunch.
