Can you conserve water and still keep your plants happy?  Yes!  Drip irrigation slowly distributes water and reduces evaporation and run-off, allowing your soil to absorb the maximum amount of water. Learn about the different types of drip irrigation systems and spray heads which are available to determine the system which will best solve your irrigation needs.  Gain firsthand knowledge of how to plan and assemble a drip irrigation system.  This will include a discussion on layout, parts, tools and specifics on assembly.

This class is part of the Green Thumb series.  Registration required at or by phone 979-845-2604.  Keyword Search: Green Thumb.  One class is $15, with price discounts for signing up for 3 or more classes at the same time.  Class is limited to 40 people. It is presented by the Travis CountyMaster Gardeners, a volunteer arm of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Travis County.

  1. I know I've needed a drip irrigation for a long time, but I haven't been able to afford for someone to come install it for me. This definitely changes things. Now I know that I can do it myself. I'll have to register for one of your classes; will there be another class soon? I think a drip irrigation system will be perfect for my garden.
