Rainwater harvesting May 18
A “Harvesting Rainwater and Solar Energy” workshop will be held Saturday, May 18, from 9 a.m. until noon, at the Cibolo Nature Center & Farm located at 140 City Park Road in 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.
Participants will hear a presentation in the Cibolo Nature Center library 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. His grid-connected solar energy panel is also tied to a battery backup and provides sufficient energy to power all of his appliances with the exception of air conditioning.
The cost is $35, $25 for Cibolo Nature Center members. Register online at Cibolo.org/calendar.
For more information, contact Cindy Glass at 830-249-4616, email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.cibolo.org/calendar.
