Many people can benefit from rainwater harvesting! We could tell you that rainwater harvesting is the latest fad, but that is simply incorrect, the ancient Egyptians were utilizing rainwater harvesting over three thousand years ago. It’s a simple concept, collect the rainwater that falls on your roof and store it in a suitable container then use it to water plants, clean your car, fill your water garden and have it for a backup water supply. It can be as simple as a 55 gallon drum to as complex as a 500,000 gallon cistern. Ponds and water gardens can also be used for rainwater harvesting.
