DWN’s Tom Spellman discusses water conservation and education with folks at the Landscape and Water Conservation Fair held recently in Montclair, CA. Tom first reviews a well-mulched fruit tree demonstration planting, then engages in a series of interviews and conversations, with topics including the education of young people about the water cycle and the importance of water conservation; easy ways to help conserve, such as not wasting water before it becomes warm at the sink or shower (use it to water plants!); precision irrigation sprinkler nozzles from Toro Irrigation; landscaping with dry-climate plants. A highlight is the great group of volunteer girls from Ayala High School. Video concludes with a demonstration by an expert water conservationist on the preferred disposition of surplus fresh fruit.
