Over the next two Saturdays, (Oct. 5 and 12), the Bay Area Water Supply and Conservation Agency (BAWSCA), Redwood City's local water agency, will team up with the city's Public Works Dept. to offer free water-efficient landscaping classes. The classes are open to residents throughout the Peninsula and Silicon Valley who wish to create a beautiful garden with minimal water.
For the first time, the classes will be held in Redwood City's new water-efficient demonstration garden. In these two hands-on workshops, participants will help to install the first water efficient demonstration garden at the RWC Public Works Office location (1400 Broadway, Redwood City).
