dc.description.abstract A design is presented to provide water for irrigation purposes to a farm developed by the Guelph Centre for Urban Organic Farming (GCUOF). The system collects rainwater from four roofs at the nearby townhouses of East Residence to a pond, from which the irrigation system fed by solar pumps draws water. This system will allow the GCUOF to remain off grid and supplies water to the crops even during drought. The projected cost of this design is approximately $135,000. en
