Sonoran Kitchen Gardens announces a rainwater harvesting workshop Saturday
May 31 and Sunday June 1, at a private home on Tucson's Tanque Verde wash.
Experienced ferrocement cistern builder Neill Prohaska will build a
ferro-cement rainwater harvesting cistern in a two day process. Because of
the heat we will begin the workshop each day at 7 a.m.
Ferro-cement is a strong smooth substance used for boat hulls. For a look
at some structures built of ferrocement, check out this website.
Ferrocement provides an inexpensive elegant way to build rainwater
harvesting cisterns for a fraction of the cost of a pre-built fiberglass
The workshop has places for fifteen people. Cost for the two day workshop
will be $100, and will include delicious well water and lunch both days.
Participants should dress in comfortable work clothes, wear hats, and be
prepared to work with ferrocement mud. Participants will participate in
building a cistern and build a small ferrocement object to take home.
If you are interested in this workshop contact Lindianne at 325-8752.
