UF/IFAS Nassau Extension Director/Horticulture Agent IV Rebecca Jordi will share ways to practice water conservation by managing your irrigation system. She will demonstrate how easy it is to set your irrigation system timer, number of days water to water, and the importance of having a rain gauge. Participants will have opportunities to practice on a control unit. We will also talk about how to calibrate your irrigation system to reduce run-off of water and potentially lower your water bill. Micro-irrigation will also be demonstrated for shrub and flower beds to reduce water usage.
