Water in Your Garden – Taking Control: A UC Master Gardener Webinar

June 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

California is all abuzz with talk of drought right now. Our local water districts have declared Stage 2 drought and are bringing on restrictions, reductions, excessive-use penalties, and drought surcharges. It’s time for us to get our dry game up and running.

Join irrigation and water-efficiency expert Lori Palmquist as she gives you a veritable buffet of strategies for lowering your water use in the landscape. She’ll provide a no-nonsense approach to using water wisely and responsibly. Lori will provide you with actionable steps and a checklist for watering your garden correctly and making your irrigation the best it can be. You’ll come away with new tools for drought-proofing your landscape. Get ready to rock your irrigation! Your garden will thank you, and our diminishing water supply will surely benefit.

Lori Palmquist is an irrigation expert who has designed, installed, repaired, maintained, and upgraded hundreds of irrigation systems in her 33-year career as a landscape professional. She has a fiery devotion to irrigation and water conservation and claims to have irrigation water running through her veins. As a water manager for several homeowners’ associations and large residential landscapes in the Bay Area, she has been responsible for saving millions of gallons of water from being wasted in the landscape.

In the past 14 years, Lori has given hundreds of talks, workshops, seminars, and trainings to thousands of landscape professionals and the public. That’s pretty good for someone who used to be terrified of public speaking.
