Greywater Installation and Swale Building & Planting
Educational Work Party with Josh Carmichael from Carmichael Environmental. 

Join us at the Lavra for a hands-on Greywater and Contour Swale Building Workshop on Sat. May 21st. Learn how to tame steep slopes on your land with on-contour swales using simple A-frame levels and hand cutting techniques. We will then be installing a laundry-to-landscape and branch drain type greywater system to irrigate a food forest on the sloped garden area. There will be lots of fun, music, and learning all in an enchanted Oak forest for all who come to play!
