Re-Imagine Your Yard! Water-Wise Landscape Transformation Workshop at Soquel High School

May 12, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm | $0.00

If you are considering taking out a thirsty lawn or drought-proofing your yard with new, water-wise plants, this workshop is for you!  Participants will gain the practical hands-on experience they’ll need to tackle their own Monterey-Bay Friendly Landscape retrofit project at home. Learn how to: 

  • Easily transform turf grass and weedy areas into new planting zones with sheet mulching;
  • Convert your existing sprinkler system to efficient, drip-irrigation;
  • Select low-water use plants for your unique site;
  • Create permeable patios and pathways with low-cost materials
  • Integrate rainwater harvesting into your landscape plans

PLUS: All workshop participants will receive FREE landscape design templates with plant lists and a FREE water-wise plant to get your project jump-started!

This workshop will double as a community service project as we convert a small section of turf at the entrance of Soquel High School into a Monterey Bay Friendly Landscape that will provide a lasting demonstration garden for the community. Come join us for a fun day of learning and conserving our precious water resources!  Pre-registration is recommended but not required.

Workshop led by Ecology Action and sponsored by the Soquel High School Agriculture Program and the Santa Cruz County Water Conservation Coalition
