Gilbert Water Conservation's free landscape workshops are back this fall.
For the first time, residents will have the chance to take home a low-water-use plant valued at $50. One plant will be randomly given away at each session.
Everyone who attends the workshops will also be entered into a final raffle to win a smart irrigation controller. The more sessions a participant attends, the more entries he or she will receive.
These classes are beneficial for anyone looking to help save water outdoors, which is where most of Gilbert's water is used.
With a shortage on the Colorado River, itis more important than ever that everyone does his or her part to help safeguard the water supply for current and future generations.
Classes begin Thursday, Oct. 12, at the Southeast Regional Library, 775 N. Greenfield Road, Gilbert, and are free for Gilbert residents to attend.
Gilbert Water Conservation will also offer a Gilbert Water 101 Workshop on Saturday, Oct. 28 at 10:30 a.m. to share how Gilbert has prepared for the Colorado River shortage with a diverse water portfolio.
Those interested in attending can register at gilbertaz.gov/WaterWorkshops.
