The North Shore receives 2522mm (95inches) of rainfall on average each year! Let’s put some of that water to work when our summers become dry. Learn rainwater harvesting techniques for your backyard or garden. Come to this workshop to learn about the basic rainwater collection systems available, how to get the most out of your rainwater harvesting, and applications and benefits of rainwater harvesting.

Ken Nentwig is working to promote awareness, education, training and certifications in Rainwater Management. His background is landscape architecture and education, and currently responsible for development of the national training program for CANARM. Ken took early retirement from University of Guelph and recently relocated with his wife to Vancouver Island where he is consulting and teaching for local colleges and industry groups, alongside the CANARM programs.

CANARM’s mission is to provide awareness, education and conduct research on Best Practices for Rainwater and Stormwater management. This includes the safe collection, storage and uses of Rainwater harvesting across Canada.
