Review quotes
"If every home were fully retrofitted with all the projects in this book, we would be well on our way to water security and watershed recovery." — Brock Dolman, director of Occidental Arts and Ecology Center's WATER Institute

"This book is the real deal. Laura Allen lives, practices, and teaches what she writes about. I’ve used her water-harvesting systems and composting toilets, along with those of many of her students, colleagues, and mentors — they all work wonderfully! Read this book, and yours could too." — Brad Lancaster, author of Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond
