Greywater & Gardening: Everything You’ve Wanted To Know

Droughts can turn any summer into a battle for survival, but for those who live off-grid – and who depend on the land for their food – droughts can be particularly dangerous.

Thankfully, though, there are solutions … such as greywater.

Greywater allows homesteaders and gardeners to use upwards of 40 percent less water from the main source while providing vegetables and other plants the water they need.

This week we talk to Laura Allen, the author of “Greywater, Green Landscape: How to Install Simple Water-Saving Irrigation Systems in Your Yard”

Laura, the cofounder of Greywater Action, tells us:

  • How much a greywater system costs. (Hint: There are low-cost options.)
  • Why homeowners who own septic tanks should consider a greywater system.
  • How homeowners in colder climates, where water easily freezes, can incorporate a greywater system.
  • Why some types of soap should not be used with a greywater system.

Finally, Laura gives us gardening tips for those who are growing vegetables with greywater.

We learned a lot from Laura, and we know you will, too!
