  Presents
Santa Barbara's Deep Green Future
with Art Ludwig

Monday, August 3, 7pm 2009, Donation $10
Santa Barbara Central Library, Faulkner Gallery

"True progress actually solves problems. Most of what is commonly 
called "progress"
  is relocation of problems out of sight in space or time"

                         
	Our goal is to live really well, on a small amount of 
well-managed resources, and help others do the same, says Ecological 
Systems Designer and Greywater specilialist Art Ludwig.

	On Monday, August 3, at 7pm, world-renowned integrated 
systems designer, educator and researcher Art Ludwig of Oasis Design 
will explain the big picture advantages of integrated design, giving 
specifics of what systems that enable Santa Barbarans to live better 
on 80% less resources would look like, and discuss options for 
removing institutional barriers to sustainability, with a focus on 
water.   With the recent announcement of a Emergency proclamation of 
a statewide water shortage by California Governor's Schwarzenegger 
this is a timely subject for all living Southern California.

Join Art as he discusses integrated design and codes for an orderly 
transition to a post peak world:

Super efficient fixtures
Water reuse
Rainwater harvesting
Non-toxic, low carbon
Fire-safe construction
Healthy transport


	Art Ludwig of Oasis Design (  www.oasisdesign.net) has worked 
on water and wastewater, systems, edible landscaping natural 
architecture, and improved building codes since 1980. His specialty 
is complex, integrated "systems of systems."  Art has studied and 
worked in 22 different countries, consulted for the states of New 
York and New Mexico and California on water reuse policy, and given 
dozens of lectures and workshops. He is the author of bestselling 
books, Water Storage, and Create an Oasis with Greywater, and other 
Greywater technical books.

	 The talk takes place on Monday, August 3 at 7 pm at the 
downtown Santa Barbara Public Library, 40 East Anapamu St, Santa 
Barbara. Donation $10,

  The greywater regulation revolution was started in 1989 in Santa 
Barbara, California. It spread from there to four other communities, 
then the whole state, via the Uniform Plumbing Code, in 1992.


With the recent California Governor's Schwarzenegger  Emergency 
proclamation of a statewide water shortage state of emergency in 
February 2009/ California Water Emergency Provisions and Executive 
Order S-06-08/ 06/04/2008 and water districts like the DWP in Los 
Angeles ordering a 20% cut in water use.  It is time to make your 
landscape reflect the changes needed in the future of water use and 
global changes that effect us in our own back yards.
