North Carolina summers can be brutal to gardens.

If plants get too much water they suffer but too little is a problem too.

What’s the answer…? Drip irrigation.

Will from Chickpea Farm will discuss how to effectively use drip irrigation, specifically drip tape, to keep your garden growing. In addition to being an effective way to water it also helps control weeds and uses less water than hand watering so you save money too. Discussion begins at 10:30am.

Come pick up some gardening tips and get your watering questions answered.
