For Immediate Release
Pleasant Hill, CA (January 27, 2015): Mark your calendars! Opening day at Our Garden will be Wednesday, April 1, AND the third annual Great Tomato Plant Sale will be two successive Saturdays, April 4 and April 11. Check back soon for more details.
Sadly, January has been completely dry, even though we all had such high hopes last month. At least some rain is still expected during the season, but it's considered very unlikely that the current drought will end anytime soon. In anticipation of another difficult year, we all need to keep on conserving just as much water as we possibly can. For water conservation tips, check out our Drought Tips page, as well as a CCMG Blog entry on Smart Controllers.
