Waterwise is Dollarwise Workshop

Homeowners make the most changes to their house and property in their first three years in the home.

The Acton Garden Club and Acton Water District want to ensure that Acton residents are aware of all they can do to save water and develop sustainable lawns and landscapes.

New homeowners will be invited to attend a workshop titled "Waterwise is Dollarwise" on Tuesday, May 18, 2004, 7:30pm - 9:00pm at the Acton Water District, 693 Massachusetts Ave. in Acton (Route 111, just before the Acton/Boxborough town line).

Members of the Waterwise Gardening committee, which include Acton Garden Club members and Water District's Environmental Director Jane Ceraso, will discuss the importance of creating and maintaining sustainable lawns and drought tolerant gardens. They will present examples of residents who have successfully implemented waterwise gardening. The attendees will receive the tools they need to get started: a collection of waterwise gifts, a copy of the book How to Get Your Lawn Off Grass by Carole Rubin and other educational material. The workshop will begin with a tour of the Acton Water District's waterwise demonstration garden, designed and planted by local girl scouts with the assistance of the Acton Water District and Acton Garden Club.

Contact Jane Ceraso at 978-263-9107 for further information and to RSVP. This workshop has been funded by a matching grant for WATERwise Solutions from National Garden Clubs, Inc.

The Acton Garden Club is a member of the Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts, Central North District. See our website (www.actongardenclub.org) or contact Peggy Garrison 978-263-9706.
