By Nate Downey, George Lawrence (Illustrator)


Our planet's water shortage is a reality for one in five people worldwide, but enough precipitation falls annually to provide ample water for everybody. We simply have to collect, store, distribute, and reuse a small percentage of that which falls from the sky. Fortunately, this way of saving the world comes with perks such as increasing your property's value, lowering your utility bills, or simply creating a comfortable oasis for conversation just outside the kitchen door. "Harvest the Rain" presents a wealth of opportunities for enriching your life. Now that you've found this book, you can reap the benefits and ensure that future generations inherit a better world. A frequent guest on public radio, a perennial presenter at green events, Nate Downey is a seasoned teacher, speaker, writer, and businessman. Soon after he started Santa Fe Permaculture in 1992, Nate's wife, Melissa McDonald, joined his forward-thinking landscape-design firm. Since then, their beautiful, functional, and ecological projects have appeared regularly in prominent publications from "Su Casa" to "Sunset." Nate Downey also writes a popular monthly column called "Permaculture in Practice" for "The Santa Fe New Mexican's" award-winning Real Estate Guide. Visit his website at www.harvesttherain.com.
