“Waterblogged”

Posted on | May 19, 2010 | 1 Comment

The People issue of LA Weekly, online tonight, on stands tomorrow, includes Chance of Rain’s Emily Green, photo left. The surrounding garden, including the photo detail with native sages and a Mediterranean olive, are part of an 8,700 square foot lot with a small house in central Los Angeles where water consumption has been reduced largely through landscape changes from 150 gallons per day to 50. Lushness is achieved through use of mediterranean climate plants and aggressive rainwater harvesting. All but the vegetable garden and fruit trees will go dormant — and unwatered — in the summer. Emily Green’s column on water conservation in the landscape, The Dry Garden, appears every Friday online in the Los Angeles Times.

    With the decline of traditional print media, and the ethics good journalists must abide by, there has to be a way to keep reporters that have not inherited family trust funds in the business of reporting the news..especially the tough and complex subjects like water. Emily, I don’t know how you do it but am glad you do!
