Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond, Vol. 2 : Water-Harvesting Earthworks

Brad Lancaster

Rainwater Harvesting for
 Drylands and Beyond, Volume 2
 is a how-to guide enabling you to “plant the rain” by creating water-harvesting “earthworks”
or “rain gardens.” Earthworks
 are simple, inexpensive strategies and landforms that passively harvest multiple sources of free on-site water including rainfall, stormwater runoff, air conditioning condensate, and greywater within “living tanks” of soil and vegetation. The plants then pump the water back out
 in the form of beauty, food, shelter, wildlife habitat, timber and forage, while controlling erosion, reducing down-stream flooding, dropping utility costs, increasing soil fertility, and improving water and air quality.
