WMG's Co-op will help you conserve water and energy, grow food, create wildlife habitat!
The Green Living Co-op will pause for the summer starting June 1, 2022 until August 31, 2021. There will not be any Green Living Co-op Workshops. Over the summer, we will be adapting our program to better meet the needs of all Tucsonians to prepare to roll out new programs for 2023! Our consultation and design services will continue and we a list of great water harvesting contractors that can take our designs and implement them.
Our Co-op uses a barn-raising model, where you learn practical skills by helping implement projects at members' homes. When you are ready to transform your home landscape, you benefit from discounted rates on WMG services, and volunteer labor from your fellow Co-op members helps you get the job done.
WMG's residential rainwater harvesting installations are completed through our Green Living Co-op. To get started we would first provide you with a design as part of our Project Plan package. If you are intersted in moving forward to have the design implemented you (or an acumulation of your household members) will need to start banking hours by volunteering at our Small-Scale Co-op Workshops.
Workshops are held almost every Saturday and some weekdays. Once you have banked 8 hours volunteering at Co-op Workshops you can put down a project deposit (provided in your estimate) and we'll get your workshop on the calendar. 16 hours of volunteer time is required for each workshop hosted at your home. Once you have banked 8 hours volunteering at workshops, you will be considered a co-op member and get the 25% co-op discount when scheduling your Project Plan package and your workshop.
