For Immediate Release
Pleasant Hill, CA (September 27, 2014): Wasn't that little bit of rain wonderful? Please think good thoughts about having a more normal rainy season this year and conserve whenever you can. As the days grow shorter, plants need less water, so your irrigation can be adjusted accordingly. For water conservation tips, check out our Drought Tips page, as well as a recent CCMG Blog entry on Smart Controllers.
If you attended (or missed!) the 2014 Sustainability Fair and are looking for handouts, they are posted on the Sustainability Fair Program page. New worm composting links added recently!
