Sustainable Water Design

Come spend two days with expert sustainable water systems designers, Art Ludwig and Brad Lancaster, as they work through practical and locally appropriate designs for Santa Barbara residents. We live in a drought and flood prone area. Learn how to manage water, nutrients, and energy more sustainably using simple design strategies.

Course Logistics

There will be a lunch break each day -- we suggest you bring food to sustain yourself and/or to share. There are several places to purchase food within a mile of the workshop site, but nothing in easy/quick walking distance.

The workshop will consist of a mix of classroom-style presentations and hands-on demonstrations/work on the land; please wear/bring appropriate clothing for both activity types.
