Rainwater Harvesting by Brad LancasterBrad Lancaster is a nationally renown speaker and author of the acclaimed Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands, Volume 1: Guiding Principles to Welcome Rain Into Your Life and Landscape has sold over 8,000 books (3 printings) and has won multiple awards. Since 1993 Brad has run a successful permaculture consulting, design, and education business focused on integrated and sustainable approaches to landscape design, planning, and living. Living on an eighth of an acre in downtown Tucson, Arizona, where rainfall is less than 12 inches annually, Brad practices what he preaches by harvesting over 100,000 gallons of rainwater per year. Brad and his brother Rodd have created an oasis in the desert by directing this harvested rainwater, not off their property and into storm drains, but instead they incorporate it into living air conditioners of food-bearing shade trees, abundant gardens, and a thriving landscape and habitat for wildlife. Brad Lancaster is a permaculture teacher, designer, consultant and co-founder of Desert Harvesters (DesertHarvesters.org). Brad has taught programs for the ECOSA Institute, Columbia University, University of Arizona, Prescott College, Audubon Expeditions, and many others. He has helped design integrated water harvesting and permaculture systems for homeowners and gardeners, including the Tucson Audubon Simpson Farm restoration site, the Milagro and Stone Curves co-housing projects.
