As we continue to consistently experience drought in the Pacific NW, how can we conserve water as gardeners? Join our the Multnomah County Master Gardener Speaker Series as AmyJo Detweiler, OSU Extension Service, shares how gardeners can serve as good earth stewards while growing a thriving garden. AmyJo will cover the seven main components of a waterwise garden including planning and design, soil, irrigation, plant selection, turf and turf alternatives, mulch, and general maintenance. She will also show photos of waterwise design elements.

Amy Jo Detweiler, Oregon State University Professor and Extension Horticulturist, is responsible for teaching and outreach in community and commercial horticulture in the high desert environment of Central Oregon working with homeowners and green industry professionals. She specializes in sustainable landscape practices including water-wise gardening, fire-wise landscaping, and backyard food production. She is also responsible for training and managing an active group of master gardener volunteers for a tri-county region.
