Gardening 101.4: Irrigation; Design, installation and Maintenance

This class is part of a 6 part series, come to all 6 and complete the course. Or pick and choose and get the information most relevant to you.

As we come out of a blistering summer’s end, irrigation might be the last thing on your mind, but this is the best time to get it installed. This session we’ll go over the water needs of various plants and how to pick which are best for your garden. We’ll cover basic irrigation types and components, how to design, install and maintain them to create an efficient irrigation system. We will also dive into alternative watering sources such as Greywater and Rainwater Harvesting. We’ll spend time the classes both in the classroom as well as out in our garden, looking at everything we learn and getting hands-on experience.
