Photo detail

Youth Drought Project participant Ryan views the team's handiwork in a Carpinteria yard. They had sheet-mulched the lawn and planted cuttings, transplants, and purchased plants two months before. Three new fruit trees at the far end are surrounded by a rainwater-harvesting swale to irrigate them with runoff from the roof. Rebates from both the State of California and Carpinteria Valley Water District covered part of the cost.
