As one of the most vital natural resources for all life on Earth, our supply of water is being threatened. For decades now, human beings have been leaving faucets running and taking extraordinarily long showers without a second thought. With the population boom our world is seeing, the manner in which human civilization retrieves water in today’s world is being reevaluated.
Techniques that require a creative use of our earth and its products are presently being embraced. It is a time in which going back to the basics is necessary. Water harvesting is predicted by Nate Downey, author of “Harvest the Rain,” to rapidly become one of the most powerful economic engines propelling society towards sustainability. As the world population continues to increase, our water resources remain stagnant, but Downey teaches people a manner of life in which lack of water will never again be a worry.
Harvesting rainwater is a practice that can provide ample water for every person, if we only learn to collect, store, distribute and reuse this water.
Join us to learn how the power of precipitation can benefit you, your wallet, and your home.
