We’ve had another dry winter, and water conservation is crucial, but irrigation choices can be overwhelming. Samanntha demystifies various methods of irrigation that can save a great deal of water, including PVC, drip, wicking or self watering, olla pots, and gravity feed from barrels. You’ll have opportunities for hands-on exploration of the equipment, and get answers to all your questions.

Progress on Residual Sugar Wine Bar at The Veranda in Concord


The Veranda, Concord

Earlier this month we learned that Coffee Shop would be opening this summer in the Veranda shopping center in Concord and right next door, Residual Sugar Wine Bar, with their main location in downtown Walnut Creek, is progressing as well as you can see in these photos. There is a huge patio area on the side and the fountains in front of the IMAX theater are nearby so this is going to be a great spot to hang out once they open.
