A unique class in Water Harvesting, from 2:30 to 4 p.m., May 11, at Root Phoenix, will discuss concepts integral to rainwater, greywater (used household) and stormwater harvesting.

Laundry to Landscape is a hands-on water harvesting class, held from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., May 18, that deals with desert gardening and landscaping needs. Rainwater and greywater harvesting offer resources we can utilize to build an oasis in the desert. Participants will install a laundry-to-landscape greywater system at a private home, which diverts used wash water from a clothes washer to trees or other landscape plants. Cost is $39.

Teacher Greg Peterson is a green living and sustainability innovator who started the Urban Farm in 2001 (UrbanFarm.org), a real-world environmental showcase home in the heart of Phoenix.
