Double Workshop Day! Rainwater Harvesting 101 & Turfgrass Management

Double Workshop Day: Rainwater Harvesting 101 & Turf Management
With our out of town attendees in mind, this two-in-one workshop day was designed to make it worth the drive.
Friday, March 6th
10:00 AM – 12:00 PM   Rainwater Harvesting 101
12:00 PM – 12:30 PM   Lunch Break*
12:30 PM – 2:30 PM   Turf Management
10:00 AM – 12:00 PM – Rainwater Harvesting 101
Field experts will guide you through this DIY workshop to provide you with the hands-on experience needed to install a rainwater collection system of your own. This course is a requirement of the Groundwater Conservation Grant Program that reimburses up to $3,000 for implementing a rainwater harvesting system in the District! More information about the Grant Program can be found here: https://posgcd.org/grant-programs/
** Lunch provided by the district**
12:30 PM to 2:30 PM – Turf Management
This two-hour workshop will build off what was learned earlier in the day during Rainwater Harvesting 101 and focus on helping Texas homeowners with yard/turf management tips to get the most out of their lawns. The program will focus on how to create a low-maintenance, water-conserving lawn by covering how to irrigate with rainwater, select a turf-grass species adapted to this area, and train participants on management practices that keep their lawns green while still protecting water.
If you have any questions about upcoming workshops, contact Program Assistant, Jaclyn Robertson, by phone (512) 409-7028 or email jaclyn.robertson@ag.tamu.edu. Hope to see you there!
