The Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District in Utah is helping residents reduce the water they use for landscape irrigation. The district has seven acres of gardens to demonstrate less-intensive landscaping. "I don't think that the gardens and the education center are going to become less important as time goes by. Our water resources are limited, and the garden provides the information needed to utilize [them] more efficiently," said Bart Forsyth, president of the gardens foundation.
