Conservation Garden

About the Conservation Garden:

100_0216The Antelope Valley Resource Conservation District’s goal for the Conservation Garden is to provide a variety of low water use plants that will be adaptable to the Antelope Valley and surrounding areas.  This will demonstrate attractive design and also showcase beautiful and appropriate landscape designs for the area and climate.

We have become painfully aware of the scarce resource of water in California and need to change the way we think about landscape and irrigation.  We are in our third year of drought and experts state there is no relief in sight.  We need to conserve the water we have and learn how to live with less water.  Today we search for changes that will sustain our environment and provide resources for future generations.

The key to sustainability is the use of native and low water use plant species, the use of appropriate fertilizers and herbicides, and a drought tolerant approach to landscaping and irrigation.

100_0267The Conservation Garden is the place to see these landscapes demonstrated so that everyone can have a beautiful landscape and save water.  This multi-step project will provide a much needed service to the Antelope Valley as well as provide a place for education and recreation.

Stage 1:  Planting individual gardens and demonstrating landscape design

Stage 2:  Grounds design, dedications, memorial garden area

Stage 3:  Providing educational materials and school tours to children

Stage 4:  Creating walking trails for recreation
