The Rain Provides: Living Systems for Rainwater Reliance
Here's a little clip from our online class. The hour long video will be available Sept 1. If you are already on our email list you will get the link. Or you can join by sending your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org. What, free education? No strings attached? That's right. What we want to promote is sane, sustainable, regenerative living practices that help us adapt and live in good relationship with our Mother Earth. Pass it on!
This class leads you through the techniques and methods for living off rainwater in the desert.While many parts of the world have drying and warming climates, we can look to the experience of Ampersand Sustainable Learning Center to show us how to design our lives to treat clean water like the scarce and sacred thing it is. This homestead is located in the high desert of New Mexico, and relies solely on rainwater collection as a water source. With fifteen years of experience building the site and living off the systems every day, Amanda Bramble can tell you first hand how far the rain can take you.
