the night before the first day of Spring
Saturday, March 19


At the Private residence of Dan and Carol Catlin in Mesa. They have an amazing home to share:

"We collect rainwater to help our citrus trees. We have raised and sunken vegetable gardens, a carob tree (we host harvests!), a simple compost system, and a fish tank with mature koi and other fish varieties. We hope to convert to a hydroponic system in the future and raise tilapia to harvest and use the tank's water to water the gardens.

"We have 4 small photovoltaic (PV) systems using 4 different types of inverters and 2 types of PV panels (4 different manufacturers for the panels). The 4 systems add up to over 15 KW of rated power. We also have a solar water heater and solar clothes dryer (clothes line!). The home includes a heated exercise pool and hot tub. These act as emergency water supplies as well as provide enjoyment.

"Our home is all electric (no natural gas) and for 6 years now we have generated more electricity than we use during the year."

(Address will be sent via email upon registration.)

BYOD (bring your own dishes) to reduce waste! And bring a camp chair if it's convenient, to ensure we have enough seating for everyone!
