Interested in saving water? Have you considered installing a greywater system, a rainwater harvesting system, or maybe even a composting toilet? Come learn about these simple, water saving technologies and meet local people who've already installed them. The evening will be a mix of short presentations on each technology, and time to meet and talk informally with system owners. This is a great opportunity to get answers to your questions, from the general to the nitty-gritty. There will also be food and drink for you.

This is a benefit to raise funds for a greywater study Greywater Action is doing. The study will be the largest of its kind to date, surveying and testing 100 simple greywater systems. Your donation will help pay for soil testing! Learn more about Greywater Action and the study at
