With workshop leader James DeRoussel Just west of Silverbell near Ironwood Hill Drive

WMG Co-op is excited to return to this westside home to transform an existing driveway into a water harvesting oasis with native plants. We will create earthworks to supplement existing water harvesting features which includes a 2,200 gallon cistern, and a kitchen resource drain system installed by WMG in 2011. In addition the homeowner and his sons have installed 300‘ of terraces on 7 levels to slow down and capture water causing an erosion problem on steep slopes behind the house.

This site was featured on our 2011 home tour, so if you missed that, here is a second chance to see one of the most inspiring sites. Workshop leader and registered landscape architect James DeRoussel will lead a discussion on different types of water harvesting features and how they relate to each other to create a truly integrated system. The owner would also be happy to give a guided tour of his solar photo voltaic system and real‐time consumption monitoring.  So come along enjoy a Memorial day weekend workout and see how easy and effective it is to be green.
