OK - a partially blind woman (me) got ahold of a Flip video camera and took some shaky video of my "laundry to landscape" project in action! Wow do I need a lot of practice with videoing stuff. And scripting! But hey - like they say, you have to work with what you've got!

Description: This "Laundry to Landscape" or "L2L" project was designed by Ryan Wood, Project Coordinator for Watershed Management Group - Phoenix, and installed by Watershed Management Group's Green Living Co-op members.

The installation took place at Dolce Verde - an urban dryland permaculture homestead in the heart of Phoenix, Arizona's historic district. It is one of seven water harvesting systems currently on the property. See pics of other water harvesting projects at Dolce Verde on my blog.

Updated the video above with an interview with Ryan Wood - Project Manager for Watershed Management Group - Phoenix, as well as footage from the day the Green Living Co-op installed the project.

Critiques welcome. This really is my first attempt at any type of video of any length. The audio is faint during one part (I'm using a Flip video camera - very rudimentary) and there is some "jiggling" of the camera (didn't have a tripod at that time). Let me know if it "communicates" the project - that's really what I'm after. Anyone who has tips on how to get better video - please share!!

Many thanks,
One-eyed Jen
