Rainwater harvesting Feb. 18
BOERNE -- John Kight, an engineer and owner of home rainwater-catchment and solar-energy systems, will offer the latest technological information and practical advice for using water- and energy-saving technology during Harvesting Rainwater and Solar Energy Saturday, Feb. 18, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Cibolo Nature Center in Boerne.
Workshop participants will hear a presentation at the Cibolo Nature Center and then carpool to Kight’s home to see his systems in action. Kight’s rainwater-catchment system supplies all the water for his family’s household and landscape needs, and his grid-connected solar energy panel provides enough electricity for normal demand during fall, winter, and spring.
The workshop costs $35, $25 for Cibolo Nature Center members. Register online at www.Cibolo.org/calendar.
The nonprofit Cibolo Nature Center is located on 162 acres of natural lands at Boerne City Park off S.H. 46 just west of the Kendall County Fairgrounds.
For more information, contact Cindy Glass at 830-249-4616, firstname.lastname@example.org, or www.cibolo.org.
