You will be shown one established wetland or wicking bed that recycles gray water, and learning how to build a simple low cost one with hands on practical sessions. These will be accompanied by lots of background on gray water legislation, the parts of a typical gray water system, what soaps to use, and more. You will go away confident enough to build your own system and if that is not enough, you will get one hour free consulting time from me when you start your planning and you will receive a downloadable manual on how I built the first wetland and this one too. This is a workshop intended to provide low cost solutions for urban people to rehabilitate Cape Town's water ecosystem and ameliorate or perhaps even prevent drought.
These are the informational and practical components of the workshop. All are afternoon workshops from 12 midday to 4 pm, so that you can do your morning errands. Please enter your name and the dates you wish to attend at the bottom of the page.
