The Greywater system at Buninyong Garden is by New Age Water (unfortunately, this local company has gone out of business).

It is connected to the two showers, and has a timer inside it so that any unused greywater is dumped to the sewer within 24 hours (which is a requirement of the Ballarat City Council).

Special soap that is ok for the environment is used, Green tea from Dominant.

April 2008 Update:  The plan now is to make ourselves a reed bed system to filter this grey water, and get clean water into a small pond.  Hoping for a frog habitat out of this. 


Onions and garlic have been harvested, and some of them made into a curry.
