Looking to conserve some water this summer by transitioning your landscaping to more sustainable processes? The Shasta College Water Wise professionals are offering a workshop that will focus on how to transition current water-heavy landscapes to more sustainable ones. Methods discussed will include using water-conserving plants, such as California native plants, and through techniques such as “lasagna composting” (layering of biodegradable material such as cardboard and wood chips). Advisors will showcase the landscape transition done for the landscape makeover contest and provide attendees with individual landscape design advice with steps for transition a landscape to a more water-wise yard.
This workshop will be at Shasta College Farm Building 4000, May 6, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Cost is free to attend and the public is invited.
The workshop is sponsored by the Shasta College Horticulture Department and Shasta Master Gardeners. For questions regarding the event, contact Leimone Waite at (530) 242-2210 or email@example.com
