Native and Drought-Tolerant Plants Workshop

Saturday, May 20, 2017

Learn how and why drought-tolerant plants need less water, and how to plant and care for them.

Did you know over 50% of residential water is used on landscaping alone? 

Discover the role of soil organisms and organic matter in maintaining plant health and how to improve your garden's water-efficiency.

For this hands-on workshop, remember to bring gloves, a 6" minimum diameter plastic, acrylic or glazed ceramic pot. You'll be able to plant and take home your own plant!
