This workshop and skillshare will begin with a slideshow on raingardens and innovative ways to capture and use water, will include a tour of the EcoHouse water features, and end with a design charette where you'll create a plan for your garden.
Learn how ecological water design can improve your quality of life and regenerate natural systems through incorporating features into your yard such as bioswales, living roofs, rain barrels, ephemeral pools, permeable landscape materials, and more.
Ecological designer Nik Bertulis helped create several of the features at the EcoHouse and will lead the tour. Nik also teaches ecological design at Merritt College and the San Francisco Art Institute.
