Water is making the news every day; too much too little, not clean enough. How we can be more efficient and thoughtful with this finite resource. This program will identify & address water issues as they pertain to gardening and present ways to make the most of the water we have. Rain collection and usage, building rain gardens, soil optimization are some of will water conservation applications that will be discussed. With this knowledge and these tools we can assist our gardens to successfully get through the periods of drought and scarcity.
