This week begins a series about xeriscaping. Sometimes our growing conditions leave us feeling as if we’re living in the desert. Today, Skip will teach us what kind of landscaping thrives in heat without much water.
Math helps us understand the causes of water shortages, how much water we’re wasting, as well as predict flooding. The big picture can be seen when you grasp how much water is falling as rain or snow, moving into rivers or aquifers, and how much is being used in cities, industry and farms. An explanation of the current water situation from the National Geographic can be found here.
