(KSL News) Utah is suffering through another drought. And today many Utahns learned how to grow water-wise lawns and gardens at the May Garden Fair in West Jordan.

Bart Forsyth, assistant general manager of the Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District, said, "What we can show here is that you can conserve a lot of water and have a beautiful garden at the same time."

Those who came to the fair were able to attend free classes and purchase hard-to-find water-wise plants from local vendors. Organizers of the fair agree that conserving water is always important whether or not Utah is in a drought year.

The Garden Fair is held three times each year. For more information on water conservation or the Garden Fair see the link on this page.
