The Town of Windsor will launch its annual water conservation program Monday, March 6, with the sale of “Garden In A Box” xeriscape kits.

“Water is a finite resource and we need to work together as a community to be good stewards of our natural resources,” said Town Clerk Patti Garcia. “While water conservation is a year-round priority for the Town of Windsor, we focus water conservation education and outreach from March through September, to target our peak water use months.”

Kicking off the water conservation activities will be a “Garden In A Box” sale. New this year, the Center for ReSource Conservation is partnering with the town to sell xeriscape garden kits that include low-water use plants suited for Colorado’s semi-arid climate.

“These kits incorporate plants that use up to 60 percent less water than lawn turf,” Garcia said.

“Garden In A Box” kits will go on sale March 6 via the Center for ReSource Conservation website. Kits range in both plant options and price points. Fifty kits have been reserved for the Windsor community and will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. Windsor residents will also receive a $25 discount on kits.

Purchased kits will be available for pick up from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 20, at the Greeley Xeric Garden, 2503 Reservoir Road.

Upcoming water conservation events include:

  • Mayor’s Water Conservation Challenge (April 1-30)
  • Water Wise Seminar (April 13)
  • At-home Water Audit (May-August)

More information on the Town of Windsor’s water conservation efforts can be found on the Water Conservation page.
