Gender Male
Location San Jose, California
Introduction Over the Christmas break 2013 I took my family to Lake Tahoe to enjoy the snow. It hasn't really rained in Northern California for almost 12 months at that point, but you couldn't really grasp the impact down in the city. On the way to Truckee we saw many reservoirs down to the minimum levels and the parched farms in the Sacramento area. Once we got to Truckee and saw that there was no snow to speak of and the Lake was at the lowest levels in years, it really made me think about the coming year. Lo and behold the Governor declared a water emergency across the state and asked to voluntarily save as much as 20% on water use. I started to look at my water use at home and saw a couple of areas I could improve upon. I enjoy gardening and teaching my kids where the things they eat come from. I wasn't really ready to give up watering my planters to save water and started searching the internet for water saving gardening technics.
