This is the June 2023 show discussing rainwater harvesting for the benefit of our landscapes. Don Titmus joined Romey and Greg to talk about the realities of collecting rainwater in the Sonoran Desert to use for our landscapes. Don explains how his passive rainwater collection system waters trees that are upslope from his house solving the problem of too much water on his back patio during the summer rains. They discuss why collecting rainwater is important, some simple and economical ways to sink water into the property, and other effective ways to make the most out of efforts to preserve this crucial resource.
