Pleasant Hill, CA (March 21, 2015): Contra Costa gardeners, start your engines! Opening day at Our Garden will be Wednesday, April 1, AND the fourth annual Great Tomato Plant Sale will be two successive Saturdays, April 4 and April 11. But wait, there's more. The West County Great Tomato Plant Sale in Richmond will be held on April 11.

January was completely dry for the first time in recorded history, February didn't give much relief at all, and so far March is dry too. The drought is still with us, worse than ever, and is now being called a "mega-drought", with mandatory cutbacks coming. In anticipation of a truly 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.
