Scarcity is re-visioned into abundance simply through creative cycling and utilization of what is already at hand. Costly and consuming habits and infrastructure, disconnected from their surroundings, are reoriented and reconnected to maximize enriching opportunities that mitigate climate change while lifting health and joy.\nYou’ll see many examples of such transformation, including how once-dying wetlands and creek flows are being regenerated with simple hand-built structures made of on-site materials; how ancient sun- and shade-harvesting sites are informing passively heated, cooled, and powered modern homes and retrofits; and how once-blighted, overheated neighborhood streets are being rejuvenated into thriving greenbelts of water, people, wildlife, art, food, and celebration by planting once-drained stormwater, seed, and yard prunings.\nWill show how laws & policy have been changed in many states to legalize, incentivize, and mandate low-cost, safe, gravity-fed, tankless greywater-harvesting & dark greywater-harvesting systems, and stormwater harvesting systems (such as curb cuts to capture street runoff). And how inexpensive site-built composting toilets have been legalized in Arizona. All this enabling fully permitted homes with no sewer or septic hook ups, since all on-site “wastes” have been transformed to harvested resources, resulting in the natural sequestering of carbon and fertility within the climate-extreme-mitigating soil-carbon-sponge.\nThis talk is both an invitation for you to engage and partner with your natural surroundings and community, and a treasure map showing you the way—by planting the rain, dancing with the sun, growing fertile shade, and more—to live as one of your community’s inspirational sparks!\n URL:https://natural-building-alliance.org/events/integrated-local-harvestssimple-affordable-and-effective-ways-to-enhance-the-natural-abundance-of-your-home-community-and-the-larger-world/ ORGANIZER;CN=Brad Lancaster:MAILTO:bradlank@gmail.com CATEGORIES:Conference Presenter,Water Harvesting LOCATION:Stage Room END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
