Event Details

Please join us for a conversation about URBAN ACUPUNCTURE with Rainwater Harvesting expert Brad Lancaster

**** Registration does NOT guarantee seating ****

What is Rainwater Harvesting?

Rainwater harvesting is the process of capturing rain and making the most of it as close as possible to where it falls. By harvesting rainwater on-site it is possible to control erosion, reduce flooding, and minimize water pollution.

Earthworks (graded soil) are some of the easiest, least expensive, and most effective ways to passively harvest and conserve water in the soil. Plants help to absorb water, reduce flooding, and improve water and air quality while providing beauty, food, shelter, and wildlife habitat.

Although rainwater harvesting has been accomplished by humans in virtually every drought vulnerable region of the world for millennia, our society seems to have a collective amnesia about the utility, efficiency, and beauty of rainwater harvesting practices.

About Brad

Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond, Volumes 1 and 2 are the best-selling, award-winning guides on how to conceptualize, design, and implement sustainable water-, sun-, shade-harvesting systems for your home, landscape, and community.

Brad practices what he preaches by harvesting over 100,000 gallons (379,000 liters) of rainwater a year. He and his brother Rodd have captured water that ran off their property into living air conditioners of food-bearing shade trees, gardens, and a thriving landscape that includes habitat for wildlife.

About the Sponsors

This event is sponsored by Water LA, a Los Angeles residence-based rainwater harvesting and urban acupuncture project. Through Water LA, residents receive hands-on training, assistance, and materials to design and complete watershed-friendly home improvements. These projects serve as demonstrations of water-wise strategies that empower homeowners.

Water LA is organized to be a shared platform for non-profits government agencies to provide support and resources for urban acupuncture. Workshops and outreach inform plans and guides that will be used to make projects easier to create. These include six main strategies: rain barrels, rain gardens, parkway retrofits, greywater use, breaking up hardscapes, and infiltration trenches.
