The Countywide Smart Gardening Program teaches residents techniques to create and maintain a healthy, beautiful, and drought-tolerant yard and garden. The Program provides FREE workshops with hands-on demonstrations covering backyard composting, worm composting, grass recycling, water-wise gardening, and fire-wise gardening. These Smart Gardening techniques can help residents save time and money, conserve water, reduce waste going to landfills, and help preserve the environment.
The project consists of the construction of an outdoor classroom including: Educational Signage, Bench Seating for 48 people, recycling bins, compost bins, raised planters, on-site storm water management, and a water wise landscape.
