Sergio Scabuzzo of the Greenman Project will be speaking to the chapter at our April meeting. You can read more about him at https://www.thegreenmanproject.com/ (and even see a 3-year old photo of my newly planted front yard with his laundry-to-landscape installation) but I cribbed the following bio from the Greywater Action site:
After 15 years of work in construction, including managing an office with a crew of 30+ contractors, Sergio decided to move on to a more ecologically minded lifestyle. In early 2014 he began installing greywater systems and while working for Greywater Corps started advocating for their widespread implementation. He holds several certifications and is trained in greywater systems installation, water harvesting, permaculture, natural building, native landscaping, web design, and has a strong focus on appropriate use of resources. Sergio is from Argentina and currently lives in Topanga Canyon where he spends most of his free time talking about sustainability.
Despite our March rains, drought is never far from the minds of us Southern Californians. While capturing rainwater is always a good idea, it rains here only a few weeks a year while we use water in our homes 24/7. Capturing at least some of it for our orchards is among the most ecological and economical things we can do. Come learn how to do it!
Note: because the bodybuilders will be holding one of their extravaganzas at the same time as our meeting, we have been moved to the Rotunda Room (where we held our Holiday Party last December). Parking, unfortunately, will be at a premium so please plan ahead. Also, because of the inevitable crush at the main entrance, be aware there is another entrance to the Rotunda Room directly from the parking lot on the Culver Boulevard side. We will attempt to hang our banner there so keep your eyes peeled. Of course, it is always possible to enter the main entrance and turn right immediately into the Rotunda Room, but it will be crowded!
