Greywater system

Jackie was kind enough to send me this video via facebook, and i thought it was worth sharing with everyone here.

There are a couple of really interesting things that come up in the video. The first is that the whole series focuses on "positive responses to peak oil and climate change," which I think is a really excellent attitute to have. Often, our response to any crisis is to point fingers, lay blame, and present mandates about what 'people' should do. I really respect groups that identify that there is (or may be) a problem, and who simply take initiative.

Trathen also mentioned that they are working as a network with other homes in the area, with the intent to make their homes more self reliant, and to create a model for other people in the future. This is exciting, because it is one of the key goals of our project, and is a great derivative of open source formats for development.

They mention a "graywater bible"- here's the author's website.

Hot stuff.
