Our Outreach Plan
The Desert Horticultural Society of the Coachella Valley addresses its challenges through public education and advocacy:
We strive to show our local political representatives that there exists a large and ever-growing number of people who share our concerns about water conservation and desert-friendly landscaping.
We present our neighbors with attractive alternatives to the traditional Palm Springs turf, landscaping through field trips to public and private gardens, educational presentations, and presence at community events.
We share knowledge and gardening tips with each other and the public at our membership meetings and on the message boards at the groups Web site.
