California American Water in partnership with the Surfrider Foundation
and G3 Green Gardens Group will offer a series of free Watershed
Friendly Garden Classes designed for residential customers.
California American Water encourages residents and customers to attend
the classes to learn about water tolerant landscaping, the urban
watershed in which they live and how to create beautiful, sustainable
gardens and strategies for reducing potable water consumption.
"The Watershed Friendly Gardening Classes will focus on landscape
design, plant selection, irrigation systems and maintenance techniques
for developing and maintaining aesthetically pleasing and
water-efficient landscapes," said California American Water's
Conservation Manager Kimberly Smith. "These classes have proven to be an
important and successful tool for reducing outdoor water use by
educating both professional landscapers and home gardeners."
All classes are offered on Saturdays and will be held at the Encanto
Park located at 751 Encanto Parkway, Duarte, Calif. Classes will be
offered from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. on the following dates:
