California American Water in partnership with the Surfrider Foundation and G3 Green Gardens Group will offer a series of free Watershed Friendly Garden Classes designed for residential customers.

California American Water encourages residents and customers to attend the classes to learn about water tolerant landscaping, the urban watershed in which they live and how to create beautiful, sustainable gardens and strategies for reducing potable water consumption.

“The Watershed Friendly Gardening Classes will focus on landscape design, plant selection, irrigation systems and maintenance techniques for developing and maintaining aesthetically pleasing and water-efficient landscapes,” said California American Water’s Conservation Manager Kimberly Smith. “These classes have proven to be an important and successful tool for reducing outdoor water use by educating both professional landscapers and home gardeners.”

All classes are offered on Saturdays and will be held at the Encanto Park located at 751 Encanto Parkway, Duarte, Calif. Classes will be offered from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on the following dates:

 
When: Saturday, February 8, 2014
Class Topic: Site Evaluation Workshop - In this hands-on workshop, customers will learn how to take the first steps in turning their yard into a Watershed Friendly Garden - evaluate their current landscape’s strengths and weaknesses and develop a plan to reduce water use, keep more rainwater on their property, and improve the soil.
 
When: Saturday, February 15, 2014
Class Topic: Sheet Mulching & Grading for Rainwater Capture Workshop – Customers will learn how to remove their water thirsty lawn without the use of toxic chemicals and discover how to transform their lawn into rich, healthy soil - the foundation for a beautiful Watershed Friendly Garden – using a technique called “sheet mulching.”
