Water Wisdom with Leigh Adams
Practical, cross-cultural approaches to harvesting, utilizing and conserving water.
It is my honor to introduce my dear friend, colleague and a woman who I call my US mum, Leigh Adams tonight at the UNA Pasadena coffee talk. Leigh is the LA County Arboretum’s Artist-in-Residence, teacher, and garden designer, is currently curating and developing The Crescent Farm – A Living Demonstration of Water Conservation and Sustainable Landscapes at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Gardens. Leigh will present a storyteller’s approach to thinking about, teaching, harvesting and conserving water.
We have been in a drought in California for many years and are currently faced with some tough decisions we must make regarding water. We are challenged by the ongoing drought, rapidly depleting groundwater, and our own cultural biases. Perhaps a look at how water is used in other cultures may offer some valuable clues to improving our local systems and overcoming these persistent, contemporary cultural difficulties with WATER
At tonight’s event, you will also have an opportunity to see some unique approaches taking place in your own neighborhoods. You will also hear about smart sprinkler irrigation controllers and rebates (in Pasadena rebates are as much as $250) you can receive in your area. For attendees and members you will receive a $40 discount off of a skydrop controller using the code ECMC40. The skydrop controller was created to help consumers monitor real-time weather patterns. The Smart Watering Technology gives you the power of weather based watering which saves time, water and money.
