Nate Downey

Nate Downey, author of Harvest the Rain: How to Enrich Your Life by Seeing Every Storm as a Resource, will make a two hour presentation, Water Use in the Bold, New American Landscape—Water Is the New Solar, on June 27 at Richland College ($10). This will be followed by an eight-hour workshop, The Bold, New American Landscape: Part 2, Cisterns, on June 28 ($99).

In the talk, Downey, a successful entrepreneur and long-time permaculture practitioner will explain how the water harvesting industry will soon join solar energy as an economic engine driving us toward real sustainability. In every water-challenged part of the world from Dallas to Dubai, an astounding variety of jobs will be created.

This workshop focuses on the theme of replacing the dominant landscape paradigm with highly efficient, productive, beautiful and comfortable outdoor environments, including harvesting rainwater in storage tanks.
