Foreword by Gary Nabhan
Rainsource Press, USA
Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands: Guiding Principles to Welcome Rain into Your Life and Landscape is the first volume of three-volume series on how to conceptualise, design and implement sustainable water-harvesting systems for your home, landscape and community. This book enables you to assess your on-site resources, gives you a diverse array of strategies to maximise their potential, and empowers you with guiding principles to create an integrated, multi-functional water-harvesting plan specific to your site and needs.
Volume 1 helps bring your site to life, reduce your cost of living, endow you with skills of self-reliance and create living air conditioners of vegetation growing beauty, food and wildlife habitat.
Brad Lancaster has taught, designed and consulted on the sustainable design system of permaculture and integrated rainwater harvesting systems since 1993. He lives on the thriving 1/8th-acre urban permaculture site he created in downtown Tucson, Arizona.
