Greywater Workshop Saturday, April 24th in Novato

Permaculture Marin Announces a "Laundry to Landscape" Greywater Workshop!

Saturday, April 24th • 10:00 am to 4:00 pm • Novato

nterested in reusing your home's greywater? Do you desire a water-saving yet abundant landscape? Want to learn more about greywater and how to build your own system? Come to our design and installation workshop!

During this one-day workshop we will spend the morning learning the principles and advantages of greywater use, different types of systems, the new California code, appropriate landscape design and plants for greywater, common mistakes in system designs, and suitable products to use. In the afternoon we will install a simple, code compliant “laundry to landscape” greywater system.

This is a hands-on class, so come prepared to dig in the dirt and actually install a system from beginning to end!

Cost: sliding scale of $40 to $70. If you are able to afford the higher cost, we would appreciate it. It will enable us to provide more workshops and training for those less able to afford the cost.

To register: or for more information, contact Kathleen Lanphier at kclanphier@gmail.com. Directions to the site will be given at registration.

The workshop will be taught by Permaculture Marin members Kathleen Lanphier and Dustin Kahn, who offer greywater system design and installation through a collaborative venture called FLOW - for the love of water. Both Dustin and Kathleen completed a greywater installer’s certification course taught by Laura Allen and Andrea Lara of Greywater Action in Oakland.

Permaculture Marin is a local volunteer organization, guided by the permaculture ethics of caring for the earth, caring for people, setting limits to consumption, and sharing resources and surplus. We envision healthy communities where people live in restorative relationships with the land and with each other, thereby assuring an abundant life for both present and future generations.
