This project will implement a rainwater harvesting system on the UW Farm for farm use and campus wide education. This system would be located beside the Burke-Gilman on the UW Farm and will be installed on a renovated sign roof. We estimate this project will save approximately 250 gallons of water per year. This project is designed to educate people on rainwater harvesting as well as inspire them to imagine future capabilities. Total CSF Grant size: $396. 

Fun Facts: 
Around 250 gallons of rainwater per year will be harnessed for the UW Farm
