Remember how tired you were last year from dragging hoses, watering cans, and weeding? There is an EASY and relatively easy solution, plus you can help conserve water, and save yourself weeding chores as you decrease run off into our streams, all at the same time.
Low volume (drip) irrigation provides all these benefits and more. Many have been intimidated by the vast array of products, and conflicting advice. The goal of the course is that every participant will be able to design and install a low volume system to meet their particular needs.
Jeff Thompson, WSU Snohomish County Master Gardener, and low volume irrigation instructor at Edmonds Community College, will be presenting a 2-hour course covering design, parts to use, where to get them, and most importantly, how not to waste resources by purchasing the wrong equipment. Course will be repeated four times to ensure a spot for everyone.
