      EVENT DETAILS
      Water Wise Plant Exchange Event

      The campus horticulture nursery (3150 E. Barstow Ave.) will host the 11th annual event, which is free to attend and will feature area experts and organizations educating the public on water-conserving plants and practices for homes and businesses. Those attending are invited to bring water-wise plants, cuttings, bulbs, seeds and trees to exchange with others. The program will include a master gardener clinic, plant information booths, gardening, irrigation and controller experts. There will also be kid’s craft projects, student projects, garden art, workshops and a plant sale from the campus nursery. Various partner organizations will have information booths and promotional items, and a limited amount of free water-wise plants will also be available. Parking is available across the street next to the Center for Irrigation Technology (5370 N. Chestnut Ave.). During the recent droughts, local residents' focus on landscape irrigation has increased since it encompasses 70 percent of a typical household’s water use, and much is wasted by inefficient irrigation methods or incorrectly calibrated sprinklers (while water-wise plants and trees can use two-thirds less water than other plants).
