This is an in-depth interview with Master Rainwater Collector Brad Lancaster. No matter where you live there will be dry spells to droughts. Having multiple sources of water is the best strategy – and Brad covers them all. In this interview you will discover:
- The 8 principles for welcoming rain into your life and landscape
- Why cisterns aren’t the best solution for collecting rain
- How to deal with toxicity from tar roofs, automobile exhaust, bird droppings, and worse
- How to work with landscapes that are either solid rock, super sandy, or thick clay.
- Can mystical powers be used to call rain?
Brad lives in Tucson, AZ on a 1/8th acre lot where he only gets about 11″ of rain per year. Brad grows about 25% of his own food in his yard and collects rain to supply all the water he and his landscape needs.
