Watershed Management Group (WMG) develops community-based solutions to ensure the long-term prosperity of people and health of the environment. We provide people with the knowledge, skills, and resources for sustainable livelihoods.
WMG offers a variety of educational, training and design services focused on raingarden design, implementation and care. We work with schools, residents, local businesses and local government to plant water, enhance native habitat, and restore our local watershed.
Harvesting rainwater is a human based adaptation to drought and dry climates that benefits plants as well.
Many desert trees can survive on very limited quantities of water. However, "dirty" water from our homes - called greywater - can provide desert trees with extra water and nutrients for their growth.
Annual and perennial flowers have adapted to the desert by distributing "seed banks that wait to sprout until conditions are just right. We include wildflowers in our designs to encourage the spread of wildflower seed banks to help combat invasives in the urban environment.
