A Much-Needed Skill and Business Opportunity
Classroom and hands-on practice in the field
Thousands of existing irrigation systems in California that waste water and/or water plants incorrectly need your help. You don’t have to be an irrigation expert to make observations and recommendations for repairs and upgrades. Join us in this two-part classroom/field workshop, and come away with the skills and resources to either add irrigation assessment to your services, or strengthen your existing practice.
9:15am – 10:45am – Classroom
Concord Senior Center, Classroom, 2727 Parkside Cir, Concord, CA 94519
We’ll step through the process of irrigation assessments, and provide you with data collection and report templates. You’ll also get plugged into resources – both written and human, that can assist you in this venture.
10:45am – 12:00pm – Lunch on your own
12:00pm-2:00pm – Field
Meadows Homes Spray Park, 1351 Detroit Ave, Concord, CA 94520
For the second part of this workshop, we’ll head out into the field, and perform an irrigation assessment. We’ll immediately put into practice what we learned in the classroom.
