Citizens Water Advocacy Group presents:  Drought Resistant and Climate Resilient Gardens

Presenter Ashley Fine teaches water conservation through school gardens. This presentation will describe several water-saving strategies that can be taught and implemented with students in school gardens, including active and passive rain harvesting, drought-tolerant crop selection, mulching and soil-building, subsurface irrigation with ollas and watering stakes, and intentional use of shade. It will include a charming short video where students demonstrate their understanding of local water resource issues.
