Water Systems Walk-Through

June 23, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Your living environment can be designed to make best use of our precious desert water. The way the infrastructure is set up can decide how much food can be grown and how much water is needed to live on. This includes storage tanks as well as the way the land is shaped. Ampersand’s site thrives on rain catchment and we will show you how we harvest, store, filter, and manage the water for human needs and gardens.

Tour our off-grid site with a focus on: IMG_3635

  • rain catchment throughout the built environment
