On Sunday, December 4, from 10 am to 4 pm, the City of Napa, Napa County Resource Conservation District (RCD), and County of Napa are sponsoring a hands-on workshop about laundry-to-landscape greywater systems. In general, greywater systems can direct water from clothes washers, bathroom sinks, and showers/tubs into mulch and soil basins in your yard where the water can benefit landscape plants and recharge our groundwater. This workshop will focus on the simplest of the greywater systems, teaching participants how to route clothes washer greywater to provide irrigation for landscaping. Laundry-to-landscape systems can help recycle the 5,000-8,000 gallons of water that the average family uses for laundry annually. A laundry-to-landscape system is inexpensive, easy to build yourself, saves water and money, and may be installed without permits.
The workshop will be led by a professional greywater consultant who will help participants learn by doing. Participants will assist in the installation of a complete laundry-to-landscape system and take home the information and experience to start work on their own greywater system immediately.
To register for the workshop, participants must pay a $40 fee in advance and fill out a form via the Napa County RCD website. The workshop will be held at a private residence in Napa, the location of which will be provided upon registration.

The City of Napa has issued a request for qualification (RFQ) from all artists who have demonstrated experience in designing and producing, and/or overseeing the production of, site-responsive public art. Through this RFQ process, the City will select an artist (or artist team) to design, fabricate, and collaborate with the local community, to install artwork upon the City’s Corporation Yard fence. This project will be unique in that it encourages a professional artist (or artist team) to utilize members of the community (i.e. young people, seniors, or other groups) to help produce the artwork at the project site.
To learn more, you can view the full project description and RFQ here.
Please feel free to share this opportunity to any artist you think might be interested!
