"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.
