Rainwater Harvesting at the New Mexico Xeriscape Expo

lancaster.jpgJen and I dropped by the 2008 New Mexico Xeriscape Expo yesterday to check out the exhibitors, visit our friends Bard and Zoe at the Soilutions booth and attend Brad Lancaster’s seminar on harvesting rainwater. We bought a copy of Brad’s book before moving to New Mexico and are in the process of designing both rainwater catchment and grey water systems for our new homestead in the South Valley.

Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands (Vol. 1): Guiding Principles to Welcome Rain into Your Life And Landscape

Brad is an energetic and gifted speaker. His talk was exciting because it was filled with common-sense (and easy to implement) solutions to managing rainwater so that it creates and supports sustainable landscapes rather than ending up as stormwater runoff that is directed away from communities and the watershed.

    Hello Tree,

    I am looking for a real farm that grows St. John’s Wort. I would love to
    visit the farm during the time when the herb is flowering.
    Please, let me know if you do grow the herb and if it would be possible
    to come for visit during the summer. I have a need for fresh St. John’s Wort.

    Thank you so very much

  2. Hi Martina,

    Yes, we are growing St. John’s Wort, but at this time we are using all of our fresh plant material for our own products. Let me know if you would like to be put on our mailing list, and I can contact you when we do have extra fresh plant for sale.

    Best, Jen
