Jim and Jessica Bonilla will tell the story of creating a 14,000-gallon, earth-bag cistern for rain capture at their beautiful, remote homestead in Cochise County, Southeastern Arizona. They’ll share the setbacks and successes, surprises, and discoveries of their experience building this cistern by hand in a challenging climate and location. The nuts and bolts of the project will also be shared, materials, costs, and time involved. You can see this process play out on this couple’s YouTube channel, the Green Dream Project, but join us at this virtual event where you can speak directly to these hard-working builders and naturalists who not only talk the talk but also walk the walk of living sustainably off-grid.
