Water Savers

28/07/2010 at 10:33 am | Posted in Gardens, Water | Leave a comment

It has been seriously dry, with grass turning brown and our newly planted trees struggling. Good news from Balsall Heath Forum – they have a grant to put in ‘Water Savers kits’ from Birmingham’s Climate Adaptation Partnership. The project will include rain butts and pipes to divert from gutters on buildings. Togther they will add up to a reservoir. We won’t have to use drinking water from the tap to keep gardens alive in future summers. The Forum are now looking for sites on public spaces and public buildings. Any suggestions are welcome, I am sure to the neighbourhood manager, Pat Wing at Balsall Heath Forum
