Since 1993 I have run a successful permaculture consulting, design, and education business focused on integrated and sustainable approaches to landscape design, planning, and living. And as I live in the dryland environment, rainwater harvesting has long been one of my specialties and a passion. Through my business I've been able to share this passion and many of the fun innovations and daily adventures that come about from striving to live more sustainably and comfortably in the Sonoran Desert. ---Brad Lancaster
This is Volume One of the three-volume set, Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands. Volume One helps bring your site to life, reduce your cost of living, endow you with skills of self-reliance, and create living air conditioners of vegetation growing beauty, food, and wildlife habitat. It's full of stories of people who are successfully welcoming rain into their lives and landscape and will invite you to do the same! Taken together, the complete three-volume set guides you on how to conceptualize, design, and implement sustainable water-harvesting systems for your home, landscape, and community.
