Each season has its unique watering needs. Combined with light winter rains and decreased sunshine the ground remains wet longer.
The California drought has added more strain on the water needs and the goal of water conservation in the garden becomes very important.
Combining all these factors, plus the fact that gardeners are now responsible for sharing their cost of the water usage, the watering hours have been adjusted as follows:
Mon, Wed, Sat:
Mornings: 6am – 10am
Evenings : 3pm – 6pm
“gardeners are now responsible for paying their cost of the water usage which varies from month-to-month based on each gardeners water usage.”Paul Pudhnum
For most up-to-date information about watering schedules can be found here, and postings will also be made a the garden.
This schedule will be changed each season to reflect the appropriate water needs for that specific growing season. This schedule is also subject to change due to new water conservations rules, leadership discretion, or emergency maintenance.
