|The Water Conservation Garden at Cuyamaca College|
Cuyamaca College is partnering with five other California community colleges in the state grant issued late last year. The curriculum in water and wastewater technology that the colleges create will be made available to all of California’s 112 community colleges looking to start or upgrade their job training programs in the field.
The other colleges participating in the grant are: College of the Redwoods (Eureka); Santa Rosa Junior College (Sonoma County); Gavilan College (Gilroy/Salinas); College of the Canyons (Santa Clarita/Valencia); and Santiago Canyon College (Orange County).
The Water Conservation Garden, which opened in 1999, is designed to showcase water conservation through a series of themed gardens, how-to displays and programs on drought-tolerant landscaping. The garden is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Admission is by suggested donation.
