DUBLIN, CA (July 12, 2018) – A free workshop on Water-Wise Gardening in the Tri-Valley is being offered from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 18, in the Community Room of the Dublin Library, 200 Civic Plaza, Dublin.
Water conservation experts will teach attendees how to create a beautiful, water-conserving landscape that can help lower water bills and save a precious resource. Participants will learn where the water for the Tri-Valley comes from and how it is delivered to customers. Armstrong Garden Center will give a presentation on having a lush garden while saving water with drought-tolerant plants. EcoFolia Design will describe the steps for sheet mulching as well as options available for irrigation.
Preregistered attendees will be entered into a drawing for a hardcover copy of East Bay Municipal Utility District’s "Plants and Landscapes for Summer-Dry Climates" and drought-tolerant plants from Armstrong Garden Center. They will also receive a giveaway bag that includes a low-flow garden hose nozzle. To ensure your space, RSVP for Water-Wise Gardening in the Tri-Valley by Monday, Aug. 13, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 925-875-2294. DSRSD residents are invited to attend; additional space may be available for those outside the District’s service area.
