While learning more about the diversity of Permaculture, the chapter upon ways to reuse dirty water you have leaving your home; describes the more natural, safer approach to filtering out dirty water into clean drinkable water slowly overtime. Water that can be used in the garden and as a water reservoir. Daniel and I plan to create the Butterfly Forests Homestead into a “zero-waste” one-hundred percent closed circuit of mother nature. 🙂
We shall be creating our own organic soaps, shampoos, conditioners and cleaning products from organic materials. Materials we will be growing from the various gardens, beehives, and goats milk. Future Grey water recycling system designs and concepts will be drawn by me and conversed/planned together. 🙂 Nothing is wasted and brought to a landfill. We will be completely responsible and caring to whatever we use and how this effects the world under our feet, to the water, plants, animals, insects and air.
*I will be drawing a side view of the second part of the grey water recycling system soon.
Below is the first image I have drawn in colored pencil.
[Please note: This drawing concept design is the second part of the Grey water recycling system. There is a marsh-like filtration bog created first, to help tiny microbes which can take their time chowing down on the many organic materials grey water is].
The plants shown on either side of the drawing are simple ideas for what one could plant around the edges of the pond. These flowers and greenery plants in the photo clippings are to inspire me; not take seriously as what we shall actually be planting there. For the time being, I have ordered a few organic catalogs online to use in future pond concepts. Ones that are water friendly and feed off of further microbes that could be potentially harmful to the gardens [a tier below the pond]. So the plants shown here are not necessarily going to be the ones set with helping clean and care of the water in the pond. 😉 🙂
