Waterwise Gardening Workshop

Posted Thursday, May 3, 2018

The Okanagan Xeriscape Association (OXA) is presenting a waterwise gardening workshop at the Vernon branch of the Okanagan Regional Library on May 8, 2018 from 6:30-8:30 pm.  “This is a fabulous opportunity to get advice from an expert gardener, OXA Program Coordinator Eva Antonijevic, whose passion for native plants and pollinator gardens is infectious,” said Jennifer Miles, Regional District of North Okanagan Water Sustainability Coordinator.   In addition to her work with the non-profit, OXA, Eva has also worked on the Ornamental Gardens at the Summerland Research Station, helping to build lush formal gardens that are also water efficient. 

This workshop is being sponsored by the Regional District of North Okanagan with a special registration fee of just $10 (regularly $50).  All funds go to support OXA education programs.  Participants will go home with custom resource materials to help them design their own xeriscape retreat.  Register by calling Hanna at 250-550-3794.
