Sooke Region Lifelong Learning is a volunteer organization offering educational programs and workshops for older adults in the Sooke region. Based on the Elder College model, we provide stimulating and enjoyable learning environments which address the unique and diverse interests of participants.

Program Leaders: Ken Nentwig, BLA MLA CLHM CLD ASSE 21000

Retired from landscape architecture, Ken is engaged in education through Gaia College, Canadian Association for Rainwater Management (CANARM), Pacific Horticulture College, and American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association (ARCSA). This has grown into numerous consultations and installations of rainwater systems. Certified through ASSE in rainwater design, installation and inspection, Ken also created the CANARM rainwater practitioners certification for Canada.

Program description:

Rainwater harvesting and management are tools that can help alleviate drought, protect aquifers, and reduce pollution of our waterways. As climate change, development pressures, and aquifer concerns evolve, appropriate planning is essential. The steps to ensure the success of a rainwater system, providing healthy and safe water supplies through environmentally sound practices, will be presented and discussed. This is an interactive presentation, with opportunity for participants to share their questions about rainwater, problems with existing systems, and thoughts on how we manage our water supplies.

Number of sessions: 1 with a follow up optional clinic TBA

Dates and time of session: Thursday, November 16 from 1:30pm – 3:00pm

Program Location: Sooke Library Multipurpose Room (in-person only).
