Ways to conserve water with gardening

Keep in mind that creating an organic garden for our families are going to use water. I want to look at the yard, and where can I take water from part of my garden and put it into my vegetables and fruit? I want to eat that. Most of our gardens are wasting water. One way we could approach this to remove your lawn, if it's something you are not using. It's a place where water is just running off and going into the street. You want to see how that space is being used, maybe your vegetable garden can go there. You want to look at how you are using water, what's wasteful, and put it into your vegetable garden. We know that eating our own food is the best way to ensure the safety of clean food.

Steven Kiralla

Eco Dad

Steven was born and grew up in Southern California. His parents were from Lebanon and had lived in a village and a society that was very in tune with nature and the natural cycles of their surroundings, and very self sufficient with growing food. At a young age he was attracted to his mother’s gardening passion and her magical ways of growing food. In 1970 he was graduating from high school, and the first Earth Day was April of that year. Earth Day made a positive change in the way he saw the planet, the air, water, population and our waste. He started wondering how we can live in our natural world with balance and less damage. Steven has a Bachelor of Science degree in
 Horticultural and Agricultural Sciences. After college, he volunteered for the Peace Corps and spent two years working in Colombia, South America.

In 1999, he and his wife helped found Seven Arrows Elementary School in Pacific Palisades, California, where both of their children attended K-6. Steven created the school’s edible garden and taught gardening and cooking to the students. He also started the Environmental/Green Committee that helped the school act daily in “green thinking” ways. He loves to be outdoors, hiking, biking, surfing, camping, skiing, playing tennis and anything else to challenge his mind and body.
