Hi Robert! Welcome to the "Organic Gardeners...Permaculturist" group! How great to hear you have some of your basic infrastructure systems set up with graywater to sawdust johns. I'd like to get a discussion started on the Permi group sometime, about graywater systems...and co-create a fall or winter tour that included some of the black & graywater systems.
