Rainwater Catchment for Navajo Elders


Over the spring break, Garden and Regenerative Practices Teacher Megan Szrom completed a service project on the Navajo Nation in Arizona. Thanks to the AVS families to made contributions to support this project.

Along with a volunteer group, Megan designed and constructed a 1320 gallon rainwater catchment system for a sheep corral to help revitalize the lands. Here is a video of Megan explaining the system:

Megan is the founder and director of the summer event Indigenous Wisdom & Permaculture Skills Convergence, an ecological skill-building camp on the Oglala Lakota Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.
