Water Systems Walk-Through

April 2 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

See how we live off rainwater at Ampersand! Your living environment can also 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, the way the land is shaped, and how the water is reused. Ampersand’s site thrives on rain catchment as our only source of water and we will show you how we harvest, store, filter, recycle, and manage the water for human needs and gardens.
