    Brad Lancaster at Food Conspiracy Coop
    412 North 4th Ave, Tucson AZ 85705

    Join Brad Lancaster in a workshop titled, "Water-Harvesting and Native-Tree Workshop" at Food Conspiracy Workshop in Tucson, AZ. Learn how to use simple water levels (called bunyips) in your yard or neighborhood and make earthworks—landscaping features that direct and capture the flow of water—for water harvesting. You’ll also learn where to place trees to maximize summer shade and winter sun. After you’re done learning, you’ll get to put your newly acquired knowledge to work installing earthworks and planting trees in the Conspiracy Gardens. Bring pointed shovels and hard rakes, along with hats and work clothes. Please register by emailing Kelly Watters at [email protected] or calling (520) 624-4821.
