Wastewater Gardener at Bookworks in Albuquerque

By Synergetic Press

July 4, 2015 | Events

Mark2-300x199Join Mark Nelson, PhD, for a signing of his award-winning book, The Wastewater Gardener: Preserving the Planet One Flush at a Time. Mark your calendars to join Mark on August 9th at Bookworks, a locally-owned and operated independent bookstore in Albuquerque to get your signed copy of the book that was voted “Most Likely to Save the Planet” in the 2015 IPPY awards!

 

wwg_300dpiIn The Wastewater GardenerMark Nelson takes us on an award-winning global expedition to learn how we are wasting the world’s dwindling supplies of fresh water by flushing away a very valuable resource, our own human wastes! A founding director of the Institute of Ecotechnics, Dr. Nelson has worked for several decades in closed ecological system research. As one of eight brave souls enclosed in the pioneering Biosphere 2 experiment, he realized how essential the proper re-use of human waste is to the health of the planet. This led to what Dr. Nelson calls a life-long love affair with constructed wetlands, where he discovered an important solution to some of our trickiest global dilemmas: Wastewater Gardens. While the problems covered in this book are very serious, Dr. Nelson’s approach to the subject makes for a delightful, down-to-earth read.

 

Come to Bookworks, one of Albuquerque’s last remaining local, independent bookstores, which is dedicated to supporting the community and connecting books and readers.
