Earlier this month, almost 600 High Desert Residents beat the heat by visiting the annual Spring Conservation Fair hosted by Apple Valley Ranchos Water Co.
Held at Lions Park in Apple Valley, the fair hosted a variety of booths: from vendors, workshops, to informational booths regarding the many aspects of Ranchos Water, including the famous Ranchos Water’s Water Wagon, which is always a hit as it delivers the high quality water Ranchos Water is known for in a mobile format.
“It was exciting to see so many people interested in learning ways to conserve water,” said Tony Penna, General Manager for Ranchos Water. “We’re grateful to all of the company’s who shared the newest conservation products and technologies and to the nurseries who displayed and even gave away drought tolerant and desert adaptive plants.”
“It was great to see all those who attended the fair,” said Ranchos Water’s Water Conservation Coordinator Norma Armenta.”They learned what steps we can all take to conserve and do our part, especially since we are in such a bad drought.”
A variety of workshops were offered on site, including how to install a High Efficiency Toilet, how to install drip irrigation, how to read your meter, and much more. The community also voted for their favorite conservation friendly landscapes for Rancho Water’s annual People’s Choice Awards.
Vendors included Fireman’s Nursery, EcoTech Services, Alliance for Water Awareness and Conservation, Apple Valley Fire Department, and Intelligent Irrigation among others. Local radio station Y-102 was on hand as well, with radio personality Coleen Quinn broadcasting live from the event and doing giveaways throughout the fair.
“The Spring Conversation Fair was a great success,” said Nayeli Mizoo, Customer Service Supervisor with EcoTech Services. “It is important for a community to be active with water conversation events, and Apple Valley Ranchos Water Co. successfully bridges the gap between the community and its vendor. As always, we are delighted to share relative water conservation information, but most all we are honored to be part of the town’s festivities and events.”
