Every year during the rain season several countries get affected by floods, yet face drought in summer. It vindicates not the lack of management but a dearth of motive to Conserve water. If one can manage his finance effectively in every formidable situation, then why not water? Water is more precious than money and we all should appreciate it before big corporations take this life giving resource from you.

Caldwell, a conservation education coordinator for the Athens Soil and Water Conservation District, is making her best efforts to make the district’s annual Backyard Conservation Series popular among local families.

It is designed to help local families understand how they can use their backyards to conserve water.

Caldwell has allied with many local folks to conserve the environment. She will be the speaker at the first series session called “Bringing in Blue Birds,” which will be held on March 14. She will also organize several workshops later on where she will teach fruit production in limited space and other eco-friendly things.

Farmers implemented a new strategy

While California is facing severe water scarcity, these farmers have turned to new methods to conserve water. Rather than relying on the government, they decided to tackle their water shortage problem by themselves. They are able to bestow their plants with a year’s worth of watering just by applying small droplets on all these plants.

This method is called drip irrigation. Instead of gushing water, farmers apply small droplets through a network of snaking plastic tubing. They have set a great example of water conservation.


When two-thirds of the world’s population has already been affected by water shortage, these small but significant acts give a valuable lesson to all of us.

Although not all of us can create a pond in our backyard, we can contribute a lot to water conservation by checking leakages or by installing water saving showers and by using water discreetly every time.

Water is not scant on our planet as nature has given us everything adequate. But we are squandering it recklessly. It is high time we all take responsibility and play our role this wet season to make the planet a much better place for future generations.
