The Water Conservation Garden is a nearly five-acre display showcasing water conservation through a series of beautiful themed exhibits. Displays include a native plant garden and vegetable garden as well as how-to gardening and irrigation exhibits. Admission is free and the Garden can be viewed on a self-guided tour or through one of its programs:

  • Four to six classes per month for the general public including landscaping, gardening and art offerings
  • Training in water conservation for professional landscapers
  • School tours
  • Regularly-scheduled adult group tours
  • Tours by appointment
  • Large educational special events
  • Outreach programs including a speakers bureau

The Garden is supported by water district dues, memberships, donations, grants, facility rentals and gift shop sales. In 2005, Friends of the Water Conservation Garden was created to increase private support for the Garden.

The Water Conservation Garden is located at 12122 Cuyamaca College Drive W., El Cajon, CA. For more information on classes and events, please call 619-660-0614 or visit
