Mixtec plant nomenclature and classification [eScholarship]
Ñuu Savi (Sacred Rain's collectivity), the Mixtec people of southern Mexico, had created some of the most complex polities in the continent at the time of European contact.

By correctly channeling rainwater at a very low cost, we can create green spaces, recharge aquifers and reduce floods in their public spaces and developments. This event will bring together the public sector, tourism, construction and the general public to learn of proven alternatives that will increase the quality of life for all of us that live in Baja California Sur.

Brad Lancaster visits us from Tucson, Arizona, a region with a desert climate and population very similar to La Paz. In his 500 m2 urban courtyard he manages to collect more than 375,000 liters of rainwater per year to feed his garden of edible, medicinal and shade plants. Author of four books on the subject, Brad has designed and installed dozens of public and private projects to capture, save and use stormwater to reforest urban landscapes.
This event is free and open to all public.

Also, if you want to know more about the subject we suggest that you see the page of Brad Lancaster http://www.harvestingrainwater.com/ and this video on Youtube to get an idea of ​​how much water we can collect in La Paz ...
