Three years ago, when I visited the county of Tulare for an Archery competition, I saw the first hand the effects of crippling drought.  California has been in a severe drought for many years now. I talked to people whose wells have run dry, leaving them waterless, and farmers who have lost their years’ crops. I wanted to find a way help people conserve water. When I went to India soon after this, I found that California is not alone in dealing with drought, and I learned about the impact of failed monsoons. Peoples’ lands had become un-farmable and whole villages had been abandoned. I was particularly interested in reuse of greywater, especially from the laundry. So I set out to research on grey water and also started my organization to promote the reuse of grey water.

I conduct workshops and presentations to spread the word about the safe reuse of grey water especially through 'laundry to lawn' systems. I also help those interested in installing a grey water system.


I promote 'Water Conservation' by conducting programs at schools and libraries and I have a 'Water Challenge' through my website for kids and adults. 


I have a hands-on 'Water Conservation Curriculum' including grey water for Elementary School students which can be used by the teachers as a part of their science class. The teachers can use it themselves or I can work with them to present it at their school. If you are interested in implementing one at your school please contact me through the 'Contact us' form.
