So you want to grow delicious produce at home, but you don’t want to break the bank on the water bill? Learn how to be “water-wise” while still enjoying great, home-grown veggies. Learn which plants do best in drought, how to maintain soil moisture, and grow wonderful food! Join us at the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden on Saturday, April 13 from 1 PM to 2 PM to learn more about growing a water-wise vegetable garden.

Followed at 2pm by a FREE Docent-Led tour of the SLO Botanical Garden.

Tami Reece has been a gardener and food preserver for 35 years. Her passion is vegetables, especially tomatoes. She became a UC Master Gardener in 2011 to further her education of horticulture and loves sharing what she has learned with other home gardeners.
