Waterwise Irrigation Talk Set for April 14
Despite the recent rains, California is still in a drought, and the Alameda Backyard Growers want to help local gardeners conserve water. The group has scheduled a presentation on waterwise irrigation at its meeting scheduled for Monday, April 14, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Rhythmix Cultural Works (RCW).
Chad Martens of Irrigation Equipment Company will discuss how to grow food using a minimum of water. Martens will discuss how to deal with water restrictions and how to make the most of the water you have.
Martens has been involved in designing, constructing and repairing irrigation systems for many years.
The growers meet regularly at RCW, located at 2513 Blanding Ave. For more details, visit www.alamedabackyardgrowers.org.
