We take rainwater harvesting very seriously at The Birches..Over the years we have worked on getting a number of jojo tanks, after many years of saving we now have 5 which means we have the ability to store up to 15 000litres of water and when the municipal water is turned off it doesn’t affect our school! We also believe in re-using grey water from washing our hands, this water is directed into the water wise garden. Rainwater from our gutters does not go down the drain; it is rather channelled into seepage beds underneath our indigenous garden. We also try so see how many other ways we can collect/harvest rainwater for our little creatures that live in our garden! See our photos of our rainwater collection systems attached.
