There is always something to do in the garden, and this unique tool shows you the best days for planting by the phase and sign of the moon. Each month shows garden activities based on your growing season, and tells you when is the fertile time to plant. By working with the forces of nature you can have a more abundant harvest.

Greywater Action- For a Sustainable Water Culture

greywateraction.org
We are a collaborative of educators who teach residents and tradespeople about affordable and simple household water systems that dramatically reduce water use and foster sustainable cultures of water. Through hands-on workshops and presentations, we’ve led thousands of people through greywater system design and construction, and work with policymakers and water districts to develop codes and incentives for greywater, rainwater harvesting, and composting toilets. We believe that decentralized conservation measures can play a critical role in drought resilience, climate adaptation, and the return of healthy stream ecosystems. Our teaching tools include interactive models of composting toilets and greywater systems, presentations, and design and installation workshops.
