As people come to the garden to look around, one of their most frequently asked questions is about the drip irrigation system I use.
When I first started out, there were many different configurations and types of equipment I used. After installing and testing thousands of feet of line and hundreds of emitter heads, I found a system that works for any type of vegetable garden and for all seasons. My system even works for raised beds and container gardens.
One of the great things about my type of irrigation is that it's simple. Any one who has opposable thumbs and the ability to kneel can do it!
I show you how to install a system from the spigot out to the garden. You do not need special, dedicated water pipes for this. Bit by bit, fitting by fitting, we install the system as you watch and learn. I even get you involved, hands on, to show that YOU CAN DO IT!
I reveal who my commercial-grade parts suppliers are, give you a detailed parts list, as well as discount coupons from one of my sources (available to my workshop students only).

What class participants say: "Thank you again, I enjoyed the class yesterday; it will support and refine my already irrigation process, and I plan to change the way I am now doing it, and the water times were educational. I enjoy visiting Love Apple Farm, you have a great place..." Rene D. "Hi Cynthia, i just want to tell you how much my husband and I enjoyed your class on drip irrigation today. I am already planning to add extra boxes for next spring and Dan is looking over the Dripworks catalog. I also want to let you know that our 3 chicks are doing well in the corner of our garden. Here is my new favorite thing to do: enjoy a gin and tonic every afternoon after work and watch the hens scratch away. You are a great teacher! (I am a first grade teacher and I really admire your no BS way of conducting your class!) Dan and I will return for more classes as soon as we've figured out the drip irrigation! Thank you again for an enjoyable day!" Jennife D
