"Free" money from your water district

Rebates available for losing your lawn, rainwater catchment, grey water ....

Just in case you hadn't heard, California is officially in a drought ... a SEVERE one!   For us gardeners and plant lovers, that means making adjustments to the way in which we garden.  These adjustments don't mean our yards have to resemble a desert full of rocks and cacti though! 

Many water districts are offering financial incentives to help us reduce our water use.  Depending on where you live, there may be rebates for losing your lawn, installing rainwater catchment systems, buying a cover for your swimming pool, installing grey water plumbing.  The amount of "free" money available can be quite significant, so check out the rebates!  The Soquel Creek Water District and Santa Clara Valley Water District both have excellent rebate programs.


Upcoming events

October 18th, 25th and November 1st 2014, 9am - 4pm : Plant for Good at Gold Rush - Our annual fall open house event

Come celebrate the fall planting season with us at Gold Rush.  We've got a great selection of water-wise plants including many California natives.  Just need plant advice?  Then come pick our brains and let us help you solve your plant or gardening dilemmas.

We know that many of you, like us, love your pets as well as plants.  So, this year, a portion of our sales on these three Saturdays will benefit the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine Foundation to help fund the wonderful research they do for our furry, hairy, feathered and scaly friends.
