1998 Timelines: TreePeople History

As a result of the design charrette, TreePeople retrofits a home in South Central Los Angeles as a demonstration site. “Hall House” (home of Mrs. Rozella Hall) was re-landscaped and retrofitted with a 3,600-gallon cistern, a water pump and a dry well. TreePeople invites the media, city officials and local stakeholders to witness the home, as it is bombarded with 4,000 gallons of water as a mock rainstorm.
