Greywater Use for Irrigation
It's a waste to irrigate with drinking water when plants can thrive on shower or laundry water. The benefits of grey water irrigation include: lower water use, less strain on septic or treatment plant, better treatment, less energy and chemical use, reclamation of nutrients, and increased awareness of natural cycles. Ecological design is about context and integration between systems. Greywater systems are among the most context-sensitive and most connected of permaculture systems. Go far enough with getting the greywater right and you’ll get the whole thing right. More info.
