This three hour workshop explores the human relationship with water, how it fits within our ecology and moves through the land.

In this workshop we will cover  

  • principles and patterns for catching, storing and distributing water
  • reading water's behaviour in the landscape
  • how to  work with rainwater, grey water and mains supplies to bring more life to our surroundings.
  • principles and design approaches to improve your management of water at home.

The workshop will combine theory and dialogue, walking and talking to explore living examples of water management around Edendale's buildings, gardens and nearby waterways.

Proudly brought to you as part of Nillumbik Shire Council’s annual Spring Outdoors program in conjunction with Manningham and Banyule councils.
