To promote and preserve the beauty of our community
Horticulture Chair Nancy Percivall gave an informative presentation on Ollas: Self-Watering Systems for Plants. An Olla is an unglazed porous clay pot used for irrigation. The pot is buried in the ground and filled with water to supply water to surrounding plants. The roots will grow towards and around the pot. The process works by soil moisture retention – when the soil is dry, water is pulled out and when the soil is moist, water remains in the Olla.
