City of Prospect is taking the proactive step of cancelling all non-essential gatherings of people in order to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus to keep the vulnerable members of our community safe. As such, regular Council programming and events have been suspended from 16 March 2020 for an undetermined period. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Learn about ways to capture rainwater to reuse inside and outside of your home. Discover how to work with nature to create green and cool homes that support biodiversity and protect our waterways and oceans.

Topics include:

  • how to capture and reuse rainwater, including how to calculate what size tank best suits you
  • options for using household greywater
  • mechanical solutions that conserve water inside your home
  • using permeable and porous paving to reduce hard surfaces
  • in-ground infiltration systems
  • using vegetated swales and buffer strips to keep your garden green
  • building raingardens and the best types of plants to choose.

This workshop is suitable for:

  • people looking to retrofit their homes
  • people planning new house builds
  • all types of homes, even those without a garden.

1.5 hour workshop, with time for Q&A. Please bring a notebook and pen if you wish to take notes.
