Green Gardener at Home Workshops3/26/2013
AUBURN -- The Placer County Water Agency will host a series of 10 "Green Gardener at Home" workshops to help local residents grow healthy and beautiful gardens and landscapes while using water and other resources efficiently.
Taught by local gardening and landscaping professionals, the PCWA series is modeled after the successful River Friendly Landscaping professional course offered by the Regional Water Authority (RWA), of which PCWA is a member.
"Using water more efficiently, reducing water usage, and keeping water from running off into storm drains and creeks are a benefit of the PCWA workshops. This can be achieved while building a beautiful and healthy landscape," said agency Deputy Director of Customer Services Linda Yager. She oversees the agency's Water Efficiency Program.
"We have recruited instructors from the local community who are experts in their fields," she said. "PCWA is pleased to offer our customers training on sustainable gardening and landscaping principles."
The 10-week series of classes will be offered Tuesdays, Feb. 26 - Apr. 30, from 6:30-8:30 p.m., in the American River Room at the PCWA Business Center, 144 Ferguson Road, in Auburn. The course is offered exclusively to PCWA water users. The $40 registration fee includes all course materials.
To register or to be placed on an interest list for the next series, contact PCWA Customer Services at (530) 823-4850 or via email at email@example.com.
