Healthy Laws and Healthy Waters Program is coming to the Cypress Creek Watershed

The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service’s Healthy Lawns and Healthy Waters Program will be hosting a free residential rainwater harvesting and turf management training with the Cypress Creek Project in mid-October in Wimberley. The program will focus on rainwater harvesting and proper use of fertilizers for residential homes.

The Healthy Lawns and Healthy Waters Program aims to improve and protect surface water quality by enhancing awareness and knowledge of best management practices. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the design and installation of residential rainwater harvesting systems and appropriate turf and landscape plant species based on local conditions.

Participants can also have their soil tested as part of the training. The soil sample bag and analysis for pH, conductivity, nitrate-nitrogen and other parameters are free to Healthy Lawns and Healthy Waters Program participants. There will be a review of how to interpret soil test results and nutrient recommendations so residents can understand the results once they receive their analysis.
