Permaculture is about working with nature toward more individual self-sufficiency, whether it’s food, energy or water. Rainwater harvesting involves capturing water during storms for use later in the year.
While he’s not yet “off the water grid”, homeowner Mark Feichtmeir of Kenwood Permaculture captures enough rain for nearly half the year. In this video, he shows us his 5000 square foot “green roof” used for capturing and where he stores his 50,000 gallon annual rainwater harvest.
Mark also showed us his permaculture garden and how permaculture principles work as AC.
