Transition Berkeley invites you to join us for an evening of film and conversation about water. We'll learn more about the reasons the water supply is dwindling by viewing a 30 minute portion of the award winning film "Last Call at the Oasis". In the discussion following the film we'll talk about solutions: setting statewide priorities for water use, harvesting rainwater, using grey-water for irrigation, recharging ground water and conservation.
We'll hear from Matt Freiberg from the Berkeley Climate Action Coalition who will give us an update on the state of our local water supply and information about water policy debates going on in California as well as practical steps we can take to conserve water at home. During the discussion period we'll have an opportunity to talk to experienced gardeners who have converted their thirsty lawns to drought tolerant native plant gardens, home owners who've diverted their grey-water to fruit trees and practical folks who've found lots of ways to save and reuse water at home. Bring your own ideas for water conservation and harvesting rainwater and grey-water at home. Also bring ideas for ways we can organize to put pressure statewide on the big water users and public policy makers who are squandering our precious water reserves. Feel free to bring the kids. this event is family friendly. Light and local refreshments will be served.
