Take the confusion out of drip irrigation systems | Washington State University Master Gardeners

Confused about drip irrigation systems?

Master Gardener and drip irrigation expert Jeff Thompson cuts through all the confusion about drip irrigation systems in a hands-on workshop sponsored by WSU-Snohomish County Extension.

The two-and-a-half hour workshop is designed to make a novice comfortable with all as­pects of designing and implementing a low volume drip irrigation system for the home gar­dener. It includes what parts to use, where to get them, and most importantly, how not to waste resources by purchasing the wrong equipment.

The workshop will be offered Friday, May 10, Wednesday, June 5, and Thursday July 11 at 1 p.m. and again at 6 p.m. each of those dates, at the Extension Education Center in South Everett in McCollum Park, 600 – 128th St. SE.

The cost is only $20, or $25 for a couple, and includes an extensive reference handout.  To register call Karie Christensen at 425-357-6039 or download the brochure at http://snohomish.wsu.edu/garden/workshops/DripIrrigation2013.pdf .
