HOMEGROWN Village and Greywater Guerrillas at Maker Faire

The Homegrown Village is going to be at Maker Faire. Of their site, they say:

This web site celebrates all of us who pioneer a HOMEGROWN way to live, eat, grow, and express ourselves. We connect to the land and to each other. is a place where we can learn from each other, share our questions, and show off how we dig in the dirt, grow our own food, work with our hands, and cook and share our meals – all things that we call HOMEGROWN.

On their site, they’re going to be featuring some of the “villagers” coming to the Faire. Here’s what they have to say about the Greywater Guerrillas:

The Greywater Guerrillas are a longstanding and legendary collaborative of educators, designers, builders, and artists who educate people on sustainable water culture and infrastructure. The group will be on hand each day teaching people how to integrate a greywater irrigation system into their gardens, as well as building a composting toilet for your home.
