Take advantage of a rainwater collection system to help your vegetables, landscape beds, trees and lawn survive Central Texas’ drought conditions. Master Gardener Ed Parken will discuss how to plan, design, and set up a sustainable water-harvesting system for your home and landscape. New filtration and treatment technologies make rainwater harvesting relatively easy, which is why it has been growing in popularity. It’s an old practice that Central Texas gardeners can take advantage of with improved and more modern materials and systems.
The event is free to the public. Please be aware that a parking fee may be charged by Zilker Botanical Garden. The seminar is presented by the Travis County Master Gardeners, a volunteer arm of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Travis County. www.tcmastergardeners.org.
