Landscaping During Drought: Roseville Class Offers Help




Roseville, Calif. - The City of Roseville is hosting a hands-on workshop to help residents learn tips and tricks to keep their gardens growing during the drought.

"This workshop will help Roseville residents learn techniques they can immediately implement at home to continue saving water."

The class begins at 10 a.m. at the Roseville Utility Exploration Center and costs $6 for Roseville residents and $8 for non-residents.
