WaterWise Garden Design Workshop
WaterWise Garden Design offers a design workshop at various times throughout the year, offering an array of topics that help you succeed with a WaterWise approach to garden design. The workshop lets you hone your skills of planning, developing, and maintaining a landscape that mostly takes care of its own water needs.
Each workshop participant receives a copy of The WaterWise Guide to Garden Design, a rain gauge, a soil sample kit, and ample time for questions and specific advice for your garden.
The workshop is scheduled from 9:00 am until noon, with a lunch break on your own. Afterward, an optional field trip is planned to tour one of the best examples of a WaterWise garden to be found. The field trip will occur rain or shine. If it rains…all the better, you get a chance to see the WaterWise garden in action.
The workshops are currently scheduled for the following dates:
If you have special needs or questions, please e-mail us. Please do not bring children or guests to the workshop unless they are registered.
Each workshop is limited to the first fifteen paid participants. If the workshop is already full by the time you try to register, you can check this website for updates to our workshop schedules throughout the year.
