Water saving workshops set

Whether your goal is to save the planet, save a little money, or perhaps a bit of both, conserving water can be a good place to start.

“There are times when your pocketbook is the only thing that matters,” horticulturist Eric Hammond said. 

He acknowledged that while the need to conserve water for the purposes of drought prevention may be low on most homeowners’ list of priorities after such a rainy spring, the need to conserve water for monetary purposes is at an all-time high.

“[W]hen dollars are tight, knowing how to best conserve water is really useful,” Hammond said.

July 30, The Oregon Garden and Sustainable Silverton will team up to present “Garden for Today’s Climate”.There will be workshops and garden tours covering rainwater storage, invasive species identification, composting, xeriscaping and gardening with native plants. 

“Learning about your broader impact helps you make the best decisions for you and your family,” Hammond said.
