“Brad Lancaster’s Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond is an important book. Its teachings should not just be applied to drylands. It’s about using hydrological cycles to create and support sustainable landscapes, and the lessons are universal and useful wherever you live. This book is where to start with environmental restoration. His story of ‘The Man Who Farms Water’ in Africa is a microcosm and metaphor for the brilliant use of Nature’s operating instructions. Most highly recommended!”–John Todd, Ph.D., Research Professor and Distinguished Lecturer, The Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources, The University of Vermont: President, Ocean Arks International

Brad Lancaster

Brad LancasterBrad Lancaster has taught, designed, and consulted on regenerative-design systems of permaculture and integrated water-harvesting systems in seven countries since 1993. He created and lives on a thriving solar-powered 1/8th-acre urban oasis in downtown Tucson, Arizona, which harvests 100,000 gallons of rainwater a year where just 12 inches falls from the sky. Brad’s dynamic books, talks, workshops, and living example have inspired tens of thousands of people to ‘plant the rain’ to sustainably grow their local resources.
