Rainwater Harvest: A Hydroponic Future
There are many reasons to harvest rainwater and use it in various ways for your sustainable existence. Not only can you use harvested rainwater for your non-potable daily water needs (like flushing toilets), but you can also use it outdoors or indoors for food production through irrigation.
