FREE workshop on how to use a watershed-friendly approach in your garden. A five-part series will be held on Saturdays, September-October 2015, at the Ventura County Government Center.

Nearly 50% of outdoor water use is wasted due to improperly scheduled, or maintained irrigation systems. Use the Water Calculator to help improve the efficiency of your irrigation timer.
