Using a drip irrigation method to water the garden this summer can conserve water, save money on water bills and improve the health of plants. To help Yolo County residents learn more, the Hanna & Herbert Bauer Memorial Community Garden is hosting a free drip irrigation class for the backyard gardener on Wednesday, April 25, from 5:15-6:30 p.m.
This interactive class will be taught by David Linebarger, the garden manager, who will teach participants about the tools needed to set up a simple drip system, how drip irrigation can produce more crops and different strategies for setting up a drip system.
This class is free for all and is part of the Yolo County Health & Human Services Agency’s commitment to providing education and resources that help residents eat fresh fruits and vegetables and live healthier lives. Classes are offered free throughout the year at the community garden. To learn more about garden activities and classes, visit: www.yolocounty.org/garden.
Pre-registration by April 25 is required for the class. To register, contact David Linebarger, 530-666-8429 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The garden is located at 137 N. Cottonwood Street in Woodland, on the west side of the Yolo County Health & Human Services Agency Bauer building.
Dress for warm weather and wear shoes that can get dirty. In the event of steady rain, the class will be cancelled.
