Event Date:
Thursday, July 23, 2020 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Event Address:
Virtual Classroom

This free, virtual field studies focuses on the nuances of rain garden care and how to keep your water harvesting landscape happy, healthy and long-lasting.

While this class is especially helpful for those new to plant care and garden maintenance in the Sonoran Desert, all are encouraged to attend.  We will review the benefits of rainwater harvesting, proper care of different plant types, how to identify and solve potential rain garden issues, watering schedules, seasonal plant needs such as trimming & weeding, and more! This fully-online class will provide both a presentation and multiple examples of rain gardens in the Tucson area with time for Q&A at the end. This field studies is offered for free thanks to grant funding from Arizona State Forestry Division.
