Grateful for information provided on all aspects of rainwater conservation, greywater systems, matters important especially important to the desert community. Watershed Management Group keeps on top of innovation and continually provides community education through hands-on workshops, certification programs, and sponsors webinars. WMG is a valuable resource.

WMG is smart and fun! Since 2003 I have enjoyed learning all they have been sharing thru the tours, seminars, co-ops, webinars and special events. I never would have guessed that one day I would prefer to use and have a composting toilet instead of the old standard one.

My first memory of the USA was as an eight-year-old girl coming from Ethiopia. I was surprised at the abundance of clean water and the lack of appreciation for this resource. Years ago it was a blessing to know the Watershed Management Group was getting established in Tucson. I enjoyed learning more and supporting them from afar. Obviously I was ecstatic when WMG began working in Phoenix.

I love to volunteer for the co-op events because it is beautiful to see people implementing newly learned solutions not just for themselves but for their neighborhoods and communities as well. WMG’s Co-op program is based on a barn-raising model where home and business owners transform their landscape to conserve water and energy, grow food, and promote wildlife while saving money.

As a homeowner I was welcome to attend special lectures during the Phoenix certification course this spring. Water harvesting earthworks and greywater systems including food-production were two valuable and useful lectures for me. The Water Harvesting Certification program provides the highest quality and greatest depth of training in integrative water harvesting offered in the nation.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

WMG gets results! They don't just talk about doing things, they do them! And teach others to do them! It's great to see such a small organization get so much done, all while getting the community involved and giving them the knowledge to promote sustainable water use and management in the desert.

I'm a great admirer of Watershed Management Group! I've attended several of their events, including tours of homes that are utilizing the training and support offered by this group. They inspired me to take some "baby-steps" by installing rainwater harvesting in my yard. Great newsletter also!

I have enjoyed walking in my neighborhood in Tucson and seeing how the curb cuts gather rainwater and planted trees grow. Watching WMG videos have inspired my husband and I to change our home landscaping to harvest water. It gives me hope for this city built in a desert!
