Learn ways to conserve water

Late summer is a good time to renovate your yard in ways that can reduce water demands for next year.

The University of Rhode Island Cooperative Extension Healthy Landscapes Program is hosting tours at two local demonstration gardens in North Kingstown. The sites are the homes of URI Master Gardeners with attractive home landscapes that protect both water quality and quantity. The tours are scheduled as follows:

• Davisville Garden Tour, Thursday, Sept. 1, from 6 to 7 p.m.

• Wickford Cove Garden Tour, Thursday, Sept. 8, from 6 to 7 p.m.

Pre-registration is required by calling 874-5398. The sites can also be viewed on the project Web site at www.healthylandscapes.org.
