Redwood City, CA - April 5 , 2006 - Redwood City invites the community to attend FREE spring gardening workshops this May; the workshops will be held at the Redwood City Council Chambers, located at 1017 Middlefield Road, in Redwood City. For anyone with a garden, landscaping, or sprinkler systems, and an interest in saving water and money, this “WaterWise” workshop is a must-see!

Interested community members can register online at, or call 780-7436 to reserve their place for one or more of these fun and informative workshops for residents:

MAY 13

  • ET Controller Concepts (9 am to 12:30 pm) ~ Get the scoop on evapotranspiration (ET) or “smart” irrigation controllers that “know” when your landscaping needs water, and how much water to provide!

  • Irrigation Scheduling/Maintenance (9 am to 12:30 pm) ~ How much water is enough...or too much? You’ll learn that it all depends on the weather, the plant selection, soil condition, and your irrigation system.
