We’ll be doing a greywater workshop at Good Magazine this Wednesday May 27th from 7 to 9 p.m. Directions and RSVP info are here.
We’re going to focus on what I consider to be the easiest way to reuse your greywater: hacking your washing machine. We’ll take a look at a couple of approaches including our surge tank, pictured above, which we just got around to elevating with scrap lumber to get a gravity assist. We’ll also look at Art Ludwig’s direct “laundry to landscape” system.
Topics will also include:
- Greywater compatible detergents
- Choosing the best plants for greywater
- Creating mulch basins
- Greywater dos and don’ts
- Plumbing parts
- Water conservation and efficiency
- Greywater cocktails (just kidding)
Hope to see you all tomorrow!
