Gardening in straw bales is easy. It is a great method for people who want to garden but have poor soils, and for those who want to garden at waist height. Gardens can be created with one straw bale, or a more permanent garden with multiple bales. Take a look at the resources below to see how it is done, and sign up for our hands-on workshop in April!
Why be Water Wise? Arizonans have long known that water is our most precious resource. Many residents presently enjoy a reliable, relatively inexpensive supply of high quality water. However, water use has begun to exceed water recharge in some areas of Cochise County, generating concern about depleting water resources. To ensure adequate water supplies for the future, all of us need to be more water wise. This web page contains tips for saving water indoors and outdoors. These water wise ideas can not only help you save money on your water bill, but also benefit the community by conserving this precious resource. Water Wise is a public/privately funded University of Arizona Cooperative Extension water conservation educational program. We are here to help you do what you want, but more water efficiently. Please let us help you!
Thank you to our Water Wise Partners - we can't do it without you!
