With water restrictions lifted in San Antonio and area lakes at much higher levels, it’s easy to be lulled into believing that the dry, drought days are behind us. Students of history know this belief is a foolish conclusion, which means water conservation remains important in South Texas. Education is key, and you can learn a lot about water conservation by attending the Earth- Kind Water Conservation Workshop, hosted by the Bexar County Master Gardeners.
The two-part workshop takes place Saturday, July 11, and Saturday, July 25, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day. Topics include landscape design for water conservation, getting the most out of your soil, managing turf to save water and money, how to install a drip irrigation system, plant selection for beauty and droughttolerance, rainwater harvesting and more.
The workshop takes place at the Bexar County Extension Office, 3355 Cherry Ridge St., Ste. 208. Cost is $40 per person or $50 for a couple. For information, or to reserve a spot, call Angel Torres at 210-467-6575. For more information about the Bexar County Master Gardeners, visit www.bexarmg.org.
