For Immediate Release
Pleasant Hill, CA (December 19, 2014): The Contra Costa Master Gardeners wish all of you a wonderful and happy holiday season, filled with the warmth of friends and family!
In other news, maybe, just maybe, we are in luck this year and will obtain adequate rainfall. We're certainly off to a strong start, and it's starting to make some headway against the water deficit. Regardless of current rainfall, though, water conservation is always a good idea, so please keep on conserving as much water as you can. For water conservation tips, check out our Drought Tips page, as well as a recent CCMG Blog entry on Smart Controllers.
