I heard they had to cancel because they did not have enough participants this year. Just saying.

I believe that the water needs of dogs and cats are equal to the needs of humans.

Continue garden tours of drought tolerant ones since most of us are interested in going that way. Thank you for the work for animals

How sad. It could have been an opportunity to illuminate the beauties of native and drought tolerant gardens. These plantings fill my garden, which has been in garden tours, as well as featured in several state/municipal water saving campaigns.

A wealth of resources is available to help homeowners and landscapers make that transformation.

Too bad they couldnt have trucked in some of the 38 million gallons of drinking water the City of Portland dumped because some kid took a pee in a reservoir there.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
