About Brad Lancaster

Brad Lancaster has run a permaculture and regenerative design, consulting, and education business focused on integrated and sustainable approaches to landscape design, planning, and living since 1993. He believes that we all can become more conscious beneficial stewards of the land, and partners in the ecosystem in which we live and that by harvesting water we can all begin to transform our households and neighborhoods from being consumers of resources to generators—and even regenerators—of resources. Brad is the author of “Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond” and in 2021 he was awarded Citizen Forester of the Year by the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management.
