(Woodland, CA) – Using a drip irrigation method to water the garden this summer can help save money on water bills and improve the health of plants. To help Yolo County residents enjoy these benefits, the Hanna & Herbert Bauer Memorial Community Garden is hosting a free drip irrigation class for the backyard gardener on Wednesday, April 24, from 5:15 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

This interactive class will be taught by David Linebarger, the garden manager, who will teach participants about the tools needed to set up a simple drip system, how drip irrigation can produce more crops and different strategies for setting up a drip system.

Pre-registration by April 23 is required for the class. To register, contact David Linebarger at (530) 666-8429 or e-mail: david.linebarger@yolocounty.org. The garden is located at 137 N. Cottonwood Street in Woodland, behind the Yolo County Health & Human Services Agency Bauer Building.

This class is free all and is part of the Yolo County Health & Human Services Agency’s commitment to providing education and resources that help residents eat fresh fruits and vegetables and live healthier lives.
