2015-10-22 - New Rainwater Harvesting Project Completed at Desbrisay Garden


Click to enlarge

A new rainwater harvesting project at the Desbrisay Organic Community Garden on Desbrisay Crescent has been completed and is now available for use.

An accessible garden shed was constructed by Charlottetown Rural High School students as part of the garden project. It has a steep roof to maximum rainwater harvesting. Rain water is collected into a modified rain barrel with a durable inflow filtration system.

The shed and rainwater harvesting system are designed for people with mobility issues so that both are easily accessible to all gardeners. Both are located near the road with the hope that the visible setup will inspire others to consider using rainwater harvesting systems.
