We have three big ideas for enjoying the summer and getting ready to plant a water efficient garden in the fall: go to each of these events this month at The Water Conservation Garden.


July 15 / Planting Water and Growing Soil

Regenerate your landscape with both “active” and “passive” sustainable planting and water harvesting strategies that can be used on any scale.  Landscape professionals, Communitree Gardens, share techniques to modify land contour in a hands-on class that will cover a lot of ground.  Class made possible by the San Diego County Watershed Protection Program.

July 20 / Wags and Wine

The Garden is staying open late the third Thursday in June, July and August for you to enjoy fine wine and a leisurely stroll with your furry friend. Enjoy a lovely summer evening among the beautiful and unusual plants and trees. If possible, please bring your own wine glass to help us reduce waste.  Wine and yummy snacks for people and dogs will be provided.

$5 per guest. CLICK HERE to register.


July 20 / Designing with California-Friendly Plants

Create a water-wise garden design from scratch.  Clayton Tschudy, Director of Horticulture, will discuss topics including site analysis and measurement, plotting your design on paper, environmental factors and water-efficient plant grouping.

Members Free, Non-Members $10. Please call 619-660-0614 x 10 to register.
