Now that spring is here, Greeley’s Water Conservation and Efficiency Team announces the return of its popular Landscape Lecture Series. The free workshops present innovative landscaping ideas that save water and money.
Participants learn how to manage our city’s water resources on a personal level—and have a fantastic yard!
“The Landscape Lecture Series is not just for people new to gardening in Colorado’s climate,” said Ruth Quade, water conservation administrator for the City of Greeley. “It is also for the seasoned gardener who wants to take a more water-sustainable approach.”
Guest speakers share their expertise across a variety of topics.
