Llano Estacado UWCD Rainwater Harvest & Xeriscaping Workshop

On the evening of March 18, residents of Seminole and surrounding towns gathered for a free workshop regarding rainwater harvesting and xeriscaping. Approximately ten people attended to listen to Nancy Lovett, a Permian Basin Master Gardener talk about the two important topics. The first program discussed groundwater information and lead into rainwater harvesting methods. 

Following the first program, door prizes were given out to the lucky names drawn. LEUWCD provided door prizes ranging from drought tolerant plant species to soaker hoses and low-flow sprinkler heads. The workshop wrapped up with a discussion of xeriscaping and native plant species that work well in the West Texas climate. The workshop was well-received and guests in attendance took away information that can be useful for each of their yards. 

For more information about rainwater harvesting or xeriscaping for your own yard, feel free to contact our office by emailing or calling at 432-758-1127.
