I've heard not such good things about using roof rain water for food crops, in that unsound chemicals are in building and roofing 
materials that can persist in soils.

We love our economy, our "democracy," our comforts, and we don't see that we're poisoning ourselves into a serious corner.
When potable water is no longer at our fingertips from faucets, what will we do? What are we doing not to arrive at such a state?

Happy Gardening!
