We’re out at the State Fair in Sacramento promoting “Water Conservation Rain or Shine” at our water-wise gardens exhibit, featuring California native and other water-wise plants, and a step-by-step guide for creating your own garden at home. Changing your outdoor landscaping is the best way to conserve water, and saving water saves money. Plus, water-wise landscapes are beautiful, colorful, low-maintenance, and attract pollinators and beneficial insects.

Come out for Kids Day on Tuesday, July 24, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Kids can make a self-watering planter and take home an edible or flowering water-wise plant.

The Fair runs through July 30. Find us at the Farm across from Building B, daily from Fair opening until 8:00 p.m. View our State Fair Exhibits page for more information, including how to apply for a turf rebate.
