This project was installed with the help of a localwater harvesting non-profit, Watershed Management Group (WMG). WMG has a program called the "Green Living Co-op". The co-op helps members get well-designed, functional water harvesting projects in the ground. To join the co-op is free. You help out on other people's projects to earn hours towards hosting your own project workshop. It's a great program that's financially accessible for most people and provides people with hands-on training to build confidence.
The video in the article takes you through the analysis phase, installation by the co-op and then shows the system working.
Here are a few pics from the article:

This workshop took place the same day as my neighborhood's annual yard sale. Several people perusing yard sale items in the neighborhood stopped by to find out what we were up to!
