Truckee locals learn water-wise ways to maintain a garden
June 29, 2015
The Truckee Donner Public Utility District hosted its annual Garden Party and Seminar on Tuesday, June 23, emphasizing ways to maintain a beautiful garden in the face of California's drought.
District staff, gardening and landscape experts, and vendors were on hand to discuss water-saving ways to keep an enjoyable garden while reducing water usage and spending.
The event was hosted in the TDPUD's Patricia S. Sutton Conservation Garden, which serves as a living example of native and drought-tolerant plants, landscaping, and irrigation techniques designed to minimize water use.
The event also served as a way for TDPUD customers to find out more about current emergency drought information, including new requirements to only water Tuesdays and Fridays, and other prohibitions against wasting water.
