Dig a Delightful Dry Creekbed Sat March 28


Combining elegance with functionality, this dry creekbed feature will wind its way through boulders and smaller stones, allowing a safe and beautiful place for rainwater to slow, spread and sink on this Mission Canyon property.

Saturday, March 28, 2015 from 8:30 am-1:30pm.

The path of stormwater running onto our hosts' driveway has been diverted into a pipe that opens into the head of the planned creekbed. The next step is to make the water flowing when it rains into a resource to hydrate the landscape, build soil, water trees, and provide a place of beauty and repose. 

Boulders are already in place and the path of the creek has been designed among a mulched landscape interspersed with trees. 

We have opened this workshop up to a greater number of participants so that the work can be shared all along the path of the creekbed. 

Join us on Saturday, March 28 from 8:30am-1:30pm to contribute to the effort while learning a different rainwater harvesting technique.  We will also explore when and how it's possible to convert run-on from a nuisance to a resource.
