A ‘smart water’ guide has been produced by the Alternative Technology Association (ATA) written by Stuart McQuire who has reduced his family’s mains water use by 96% AND he still maintains a thriving garden.
Stuart, an environmental scientist, tells readers of this book just what he’s done around his home and he says the good news is that with rainwater and greywater, people have more water available to them than they think.
Stuart McQuire is a past president of ATA and this is the second book he has written on water.His home is surrounded by a permaculture garden with 20 fruit and nut trees, and features grid-connected solar electricity, solar hot water, rainwater tanks, water recycling, composting and chooks. The book includes photos of Stuart’s water smart house and garden.
