November: Where does the water go?

Water is quickly becoming one of the world 's most precious, wasted, and wanted resources. How does agriculture use our water resources and how can food production be a channel for more sustainable water use practices? We play a role in creating and sustaining systems that are utilize responsible amounts of water, and recognize the effect we have on our own ecological addresses. Build a rain barrel system for the Yurt to harvest rainwater and create a sustainable garden!
