Advice to Grow By...Ask Us...
Despite recent showers, the rainfall outlook continues to look poor for this winter. Please keep on conserving as much water as you can. As days grow shorter, plants need less water, so your irrigation can be adjusted accordingly. However, drought-stressed trees may need deep watering before the cold weather hits to make sure they survive the winter. For water conservation tips, check out our Drought Tips page, as well as a recent CCMG Blog entry on Smart Controllers.
Speaking of our blog, we've begun posting lots more items, including many Help Desk questions and answers...be sure to check it out!
If you are looking for 2014 Sustainability Fair handouts, they are posted on the Sustainability Fair Program page. (The worm composting links were added somewhat after the event.)
