This class was cancelled due to low enrollment. It will be offered again in the spring or summer of 2020. Learn to use the water you already have for outdoor irrigation of shrubs, trees and vegetable gardens. With the changing climate we can expect more droughts like the recent 2011 to 2016 drought. Even with these challenges, we can still grow food and have a healthy vibrant landscape. Rainfall on our roofs and the laundry water from our washers can be used to keep a landscape healthy. Examples of integrated landscape solutions including low water use plants, rainwater and gray water will be provided in this workshop.
