Description:Hui O Ko’olaupoko is a non-profit conservation organization operating in Kaneohe, HI. Rainfall is heavy in the winter months (X - X) and light the rest of the year, so the organization has asked for a design to build a rainwater catchment system that they can use to water their community garden in the dry season. The
system should have a footprint of up to 10 sqft, hold up to 200 gal. of water, and not be a permanent structure, but should be durable for many years. In the future, the system may include a drip irrigation system.
