Watershed Management Group Workshop:
Hydrate Your Yard


Ryan Wood

  • Program Manager, Watershed Management Group

This session is all about Watershed Management Group’s 3 “S”s: slow, spread, and sink. Learn how to use passive rainwater harvesting to create a series of berms, basins, and swales that will direct rainwater to benefit plants while reducing flooding and erosion in your yard. These practices will slow the flow of the water, spread it across the areas where it’s needed, and sink it into the ground.

As the Program Manager for Watershed Management Group Ryan Wood has an extensive knowledge in water harvesting and permaculture design. Ryan helps create sustainable livelihoods by applying his talents and educating the public through hands-on workshops, presentations, consultations, and integrated design services. Email Ryan at:
