Our interns rock! We have been making pizza in our new earthen oven, building walls out of pallets, and constructing a new water wise garden bed. Join us next weekend for the last class of our technical series, focusing on water infrastructure- catching it and using it again and again. We are also planning ahead for a two and a half day mushroom cultivation workshop with Radical Mycology. There are only 25 spots available for this popular workshop so register now!

Prepare for Rain!
Saturday, June 27th 10am to 4pm
Learn to harvest and make use of our important water resources. This class will cover the basic elements of rain collection systems including sizing and siting your tank as well as keeping the water clean. We will also discuss accessories like tank gauges, first flush systems, and filters for DIY systems.
Household waste water is also a valuable resource for irrigation in our dry climate. Learn to use it safely for creating gardens and wildlife habitats. We will cover the essentials: New Mexico greywater code, appropriate soaps, and basic gravity fed greywater systems like mulch basins, infiltration chambers, and pumice wicks. We will tour Ampersand’s systems to observe these concepts in action.
