Rainwater Harvesting for Community Gardens

Another community garden is ready for the rain! We do some installations ourselves, but our goal is to teach contractors how to add rainwater harvesting to their portfolio of services.

Like many of these community gardens, this school takes water from a single downspout. A 4" pipe brings rainwater to an above-ground tank, which has a basket-style prefilter. Yes these require cleaning, but they are most popular. A typical rainstorm will fill the tank.

This project didn't use a pump, but most do.
