Rainwater Harvesting: Building Natural Processes

An awareness of the disruptions to natural water cycles and caused by urban development, is essential for the effective management of water resources.  Refurbishing nature’s water processes is a big job, requiring changes in our thinking and in the decades-old cultural modus operandi associated with water systems. This course introduces the basic premises of rainwater harvesting and the “new” lifestyles and thought processes it encourages us to adopt.
Instructor: Ken Nentwig is a retired landscape architect and an educator, working in rainwater harvesting and landscape planning/design.  As an authorized Trainer for the American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association (ARCSA), he is deeply involved in their accreditation programs.  In addition, he consults with developers, builders, landscapers and rainwater practitioners in best practices for rainwater system installations.

This course consists of four stand-alone sessions: you can register for a single session or receive a discounted rate if you register for the entire series.
