WATER-WISE SCHOOL GARDEN IN JAMUL RECEIVES GRANT

March 11, 2012 (Jamul) – The water saving garden at Jamul Primary School sports a new information board thanks to a generous grant from the Metropolitan Water District. The sign is part of an ambitious outdoor learning project, which demonstrates and promotes sustainable gardening practices in arid East San Diego County. The garden is a project of ARCHES, a local non-profit corporation.

“There are many water saving features in this garden’s design,” says Lois Young, one of the after school garden instructors. “Sunken beds, instead of raised beds, catch and contain more of our limited rainfall, and the beds don’t dry out as quickly. During dry months they require less irrigation.”
