Local experts on water conservation and conditions will answer questions after the first presentation. The Symposium will also include great mini demos: “Thriller, Spiller, Filler” pots using perennials; how to prune your roses for best display; and a look at the lovely heritage garden at the Old Hotel in Othello.


There will also be exhibitors from Grant-Adams counties who will connect you with the waterwise supplies you need. A few to name are: Xerces Society, Ephrata Seed Library, Washington Native Plant Society, Watershed Council, City of Moses Lake, and many more. The Symposium offers free food and beverages and there will be a drawing for three generous and amazing waterwise door prizes.
