The City of Spokane Water Stewardship program and the WSU Extension Office’s Master Gardener Program are teaming up to teach people about landscaping options that also help conserve water.

The classes will cover native and drought-tolerant plants, zone planting, and drip irrigation.

“Waterwise Gardening” classes will be held at the WSU Extension Office at 222 N. Havana on:

  • Thursday, May 21, from 6 to 9 p.m.
  • Saturday, May 30, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Cost is $12. To register, go to www.mgfsc.org.

The City’s Water Stewardship program encourages residents to “Slow the Flow” of water and promote water stewardship. Protecting and preserving our water resources is a long-term City goal. The City’s Water Department also must meet water conservation goals as part of state and federal requirements. Reducing outdoor water use for irrigation in the summer is particularly important.
