Water Wise Gardening Class Offered by NPGCD

Are you interested in learning how to have the beautiful landscape that you’ve always dreamed of, while being a responsible steward of the area’s precious water resources?  This topic will be covered at the Water Wise Gardening Class to be held on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at 9:00am at North Plains Groundwater Conservation District. 

Owner of Canyon’s Edge Plants Neal Hinders will discuss xeriscaping concepts and low water use plant varieties and their characteristics.  Canyon’s Edge Plants is located on the square in Canyon and specializes in low-water use and native plants. The information will be equally relevant for the person who wants the lowest maintenance and lowest water-use landscape, and the person who wants to spend more time working on their garden or prefers a combination of low water-use and traditional plants. Water conservation achieved through these practical techniques can result in savings of time and money for homeowners and businesses. 

The class is free to the public, and class attendees will receive free resources on water wise gardening and xeriscaping. One $30 gift card to Canyon’s Edge Plants will be given away to an attendee, and all attendees will receive 25% off of purchases up to $100 at Canyon’s Edge Plants. The class will be held at the North Plains Groundwater Conservation District office at 603 East 1st Street in Dumas from 9:00 AM-12:00 Noon on Saturday, March 11, 2017.  Persons interested in attending can contact Kirk Welch at kwelch@northplainsgcd.org, or call 806-935-6401 to register for the class.
