Hands-on Laundry to Landscape Greywater Workshop (Lafayette)

May 13 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm


ReUse Water with Graywater!

Learn how to convert your own washing machine into a water-saving laundry-to-landscape graywater system. This system is low in cost, doesn’t require a permit, and is great for irrigating trees, bushes, and other perennial plants.

In this hands-on workshop sponsored by EBMUD and led by Greywater Action, you’ll learn about and participate in the construction and installation of a real laundry-to-landscape graywater system. No prior experience is required. You will gain the knowledge and experience to plan and install your own graywater system.

The workshop will cover:
• Graywater principles
• Best plants to water with graywater
• Common 
pitfalls and how to avoid them
• Steps, materials, and installation for a simple graywater system from the washing machine

Installation site is a residence located in Lafayette, CA. Address provided after registration. Lunch is provided for this workshop. Rain or shine, barring severe storms.

This class is part of a graywater educational event series taking place in various East Bay communities in 2017. This series is a collaboration between EBMUD, Ecology Center, Greywater Action, Sustainable Contra Costa, Lafayette Library and Learning Center Foundation, and Friends of the Lafayette Library and Learning Center.

Space is limited to 20 participants. Online registration coming soon. Email or call to pre-register and hold your place until full registration is available.
