Water is quickly becoming an “endangered species” on our blue planet. Urban growth increases storm water runoff, which in turn harms natural waterways and pollutes our rivers, lakes and oceans. Of all the water on our planet, only 1% is potable/drinkable! All life requires water for survival. Becoming aware of the current state of our environmental condition is the first step in identifying viable solutions to ensure clean and healthy water for future generations. Learn to capture and re-use this valuable resource in your own yard! We will also show you how to turn this Rainwater capture system into a beautiful focal point in your Landscape!
