Guest Speaker: Jeffrey Anderson an agronomy and horticulture agent for New Mexico State University’s Dona Ana County Cooperative Extension Service, will discuss how gardeners can transform their home gardens by harvesting rainwater. El Paso gets up to 9 inches of rain per year. Most of the rain falls during the monsoon season. Rain harvesting offers many benefits. Helps conserve water and rainwater is 100% salt-free supplying plants with natural nutrients.
