Given the current trends of drought and population growth, the Dallas-Fort Worth area will likely see new and/or further water use restrictions in the near future. Join us for this two hour, hands-on class and learn how to make the most of our unpredictable rainfall by designing, building, and using your own water harvesting system in your yard and garden. This class pairs perfectly with our “Urban Gardening: Making Small Spaces Productive” class.

Instructor Jason Ramsey of Perma-Scape Landscape Design and Management, a consultancy firm dedicated to regenerative agriculture practices and the Permaculture philosophy. Jason received his Permaculture certification in February of 2014 through Permaculture Denton. Jason has been a practitioner of Permaculture since 2008.

This class will be held in the Commons at BRIT.

$20 members/$25 non-members.
