About Ken

In 1967, 10-year-old Ken Foster read The Secret Garden by Frances Burnett. It took him a whole summer to read, but it inspired him to see gardening as a celebration of our coexistence with nature. In 1985, he took on an apprenticeship at the UC Santa Cruz Farm and Garden, and there he discovered his passion. He founded Terra Nova Ecological Landscaping in 1988, and has dedicated his life to caring for the environment and community through sustainable landscaping. He also teaches a permaculture class at Cabrillo College. When he’s not busy with designing, installing, and maintaining ecological landscapes, Ken can be found riding his bike around town, or making mandalas out of salvaged herbs that would otherwise have been sent to the landfill.

    Brac Greywater Recycling Systems

    The Brac Greywater Recyling System is available in the Atlanta region from Southern Energy Solutions, Marietta, Georgia, United States.

    The Brac Greywater Recycling System takes in greywater (bath/shower/laundry water), filters and treats it, then sends it on demand for toilet flushing. By reusing greywater for toilet flushing, the typical home can save 30% or more on potable water consumption.
