    Low Volume Irrigation
    Speaker: Angela Chandler

Learning how to conserve water while adequately irrigating our garden can be a challenge during this very dry Summer. Low volume irrigation techniques will eliminate water runoff into the street and can deeply water our plants' root systems. Angela Chandler will provide an overview of the design, installation, and maintenance of drip and micro-spray systems.

Angela has presented at our meetings in the past and is a life-long hobby gardener. She created "The Garden Academy" focusing on various organic garden methods for the Gulf Coast. She is teaching series of gardening and urban homesteading classes at College of the Mainland this summer and fall. Angela also teaches classes for both Urban Harvest and The Arbor Gate on a wide variety of topics such as basic organic gardening, fruit tree care, composting, companion plants, low volume irrigation, etc.

Angela holds Specialist Certifications in Plant Propagation, Entomology, Rainwater Harvesting, and Greenhouse Management. In addition, she is a retired Texas Master Gardener and Texas Master Naturalist. She is a frequent expert guest on Randy Lemmon's Gardenline (KTRH-AM radio program).
