The Water Conservation Garden has invited all Helix Water District customers to Customer Appreciation Day on Saturday, May 18, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., to say “Thank you for supporting The Garden”.

The event is FREE, parking is FREE and Kona Ice will be keeping it cool with FREE Hawaiian Shave Ice, which begins as a snow cone but tastes like a Hawaiian vacation when the sweet cream and fresh fruit are added (one free shave ice per person while supplies last).There will be kids’ activities and Ms. Smarty Plants, Butterfly Encounters and Tortoise Talk, and homeowners can learn how to “Toss the Turf”, discover drought-tolerant plants, get landscaping advice and tour The Garden’s five acres for landscaping inspiration.

Is The Garden a good place to spend a Saturday morning? Yeah it is. In our customer survey, our customers rated The Water Conservation Garden as their favorite conservation program. And, 57 percent of our customers who visited or took a class at The Garden went home and applied what they learned in their own landscapes. That’s big! Helix will be at the event on Saturday to answer your irrigation and landscaping questions.

The Water Conservation Garden is located on the Cuyamaca College campus in El Cajon. It’s just off Jamacha at 12122 Cuyamaca College Drive West. For more information, go to
