Waterwise Garden Workshop on June 18

Create a garden habitat instead of a lawn! Less water, less work… more fun!

Join us for a Waterwise Garden Workshop next Saturday, June 18, at 9:15am at Mayfield Park (next to the College Terrace Library). This one-hour workshop will be led by Mina Sharma of California Native Plant Society and Ashley Shannon, Senior Water Conservation Specialist at Valley Water (formerly known as Santa Clara County Water District).

  1. Show and tell with examples of California native plants to turn your lawn into a garden habitat.
  2. Learn how to use perennial plants and design options for a Waterwise garden with little maintenance and varied habitat for butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds.
  3. Valley Water will give out information on lawn removal and rebates.

Bring your own seat as needed. Walk-in, first come, first serve. Space for 20 max. Distance as desired. Sponsored by the College Terrace Residents Association (CTRA).
