Master Gardener to explain drip irrigation for residences today in Port Angeles

PORT ANGELES — Master Gardener John Holmes will demonstrate how to design, install and operate a drip irrigation system appropriate for a home garden at noon today.

The free presentation will be in the county commissioners’ meeting room (160) at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St.

Brown bag series

The presentation is part of the “Green Thumb Garden Tips” brown bag series sponsored by the WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners.

Holmes will explain how drip irrigation can help homeowners conserve water while directing water to where it will be most beneficial.

He will explain the components that make up a drip system and describe procedures for laying out the system from faucet to flower or vegetable bed, as well as provide recommendations for selecting parts.

Holmes has 30 years of experience in civil engineering and managing systems of various sizes.

A Master Gardener since 2007, he has installed systems at two local Master Gardener demonstration gardens and maintains a community water system for the Dungeness Meadows Home Association.
