Residents looking to lower their water usage need to find creative ways to change the way they garden.
More than half of the water used in urban homes is applied to outdoor landscapes! Residents looking to lower their water usage need to find creative ways to change the way they water outside. The University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) Master Gardeners are offering a free Low Water Use Landscaping class that can help.
UCCE Master Gardener coordinator Anne Schellman and Orchard Systems Advisor Kari Arnold will highlight easy ways to reduce water use in landscaping, which plants thrive in our area with less water, and how to design a landscape that has color year-round and is welcoming to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
This free class will be held on Thursday, June 27, 2019, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Agricultural Center, Harvest Hall Rooms D&E at 3800 Cornucopia Way, Modesto, CA 95358.
