Win a xeriscape garden prize

The Okanagan Xeriscape Association has organized a garden contest to encourage residents of the Central Okanagan to convert existing water-hungry landscapes to water-smart ones and to showcase their existing xeriscape garden.

To enter the contest, homeowners are asked to take before and after photographs and become familiar with the principles of xeriscape, as detailed on the Okanagan Xeriscape Association website. Winners will be recognized on the website and receive a specially designed and inscribed garden ornament. All entries are eligible for a $500 draw prize.

For complete contest details, entry form and to access a comprehensive database of drought tolerant plants, go to the website at  www.okanaganxeriscape.org.
