Learn all about drip irrigation systems

Susan Kalmar, WSU Clallam County Master Gardener, will present information to demystify drip irrigation systems for the Do-It-Yourself gardener at noon on Thursday, June 14, in the county commissioner’s meeting room at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles.

Kalmar she will explain how drip irrigation saves water usage and time and results in happier, healthier plants. She will use a hands-on mock-up of a system to demonstrate the installation process from planning, purchasing and connecting the equipment to setting the timer, including provisions for multiple zones and easy expansion.

Kalmar will also describe how a home gardener, without specialty training in plumbing or soil science, can install a system and how to construct it on a limited budget.

A Master Gardener since 2017, Kalmar holds a degree in Ornamental Horticulture. She has seven years of experience in greenhouse management including designing a drip irrigation for seasonal plants. She has configured a drip irrigation system for her home container gardening in Port Angeles.

The presentation is sponsored by the Clallam County Master Gardeners. For questions, call 565-2679.
