Waterwise Gardening Demonstration
 
Join Master Gardener volunteers for a seminar on water conservation techniques in the Georgiana Smith Memorial Gardens at the Hood River Library at 11 a.m. on Friday, July 27th.
 
The waterwise gardens in front of the library on State Street will act as a demonstration to show off these techniques and explore other ways to xeriscape.  Xeriscaping is a landscape style that requires little or no irrigation.
 
This program is provided by the Oregon State Master Gardener Program through the Oregon State University Extension Service.The Master Gardener Program educates Oregonians about the art and science of growing and caring for plants. This program also facilitates the training of a highly educated corp of volunteers. These volunteers extend sustainable gardening information to their communities through education and outreach programs. Master Gardeners are trained volunteers, educated through OSU Extension Service to offer the local community reliable, relevant and reachable gardening information and education opportunities.
