Water catchment tanks on the end of a buildingEARTHseed Farm, a certified-organic, solar-powered 14-acre agricultural nonprofit in Sebastopol, CA, grows apples, pears, persimmons, plums, pluots, guavas, mixed berries, herbs, and flowers. They operate and are rooted in AfroIndigenous permaculture principles built on the long legacy of earth wisdom traditions of people of African descent. They received $4,970 to install a rainwater catchment system they expect will provide up to 1,000 gallons of water each year that they will use to irrigate their orchard and become part of educational tours.

EARTHseed is thrilled to have successfully installed a 525-gallon rainwater catchment system on their farm store. The system is featured on tours and shared with farm visitors for their U-Pick operation and other programs. Abundance Steward Mallika Nair told us that the project had been a good start towards water conservation on the farm, and they are already looking at expanding the system.
