From the Back
This book enables you to assess your on-site resources (rainwater, topsoil, sun, plants, and more), gives you a diverse array of strategies to maximize their potential, and empowers you with guiding principles to create an integrated, multi-functional water-harvesting plan specific to your site and needs.
Clearly written with more than 150 illustrations, this volume helps bring your site to life, reduce your cost of living, dawn yourself and your community with skills of self reliance and cooperations, and create living air conditioners of vegetation growing beauty, food and wildlife habitat. Stories of people who are successfully welcoming rain into their life and landscape will invite you to do the same.
