Dear Editor:

I was very interested to see last week’s Foothill Reader article on the Inland Empire garden-friendly event scheduled at the Upland Home Depot.

Billed as the Water-Wise Plant Sale, discounts are being offered on climate-appropriate plants that help conserve water. Many local municipal water agencies are hosting the event, but guess what? No Golden State. Obviously, they would rather rake in the greater profits from our use of more water than the WRAM surcharge we get to pay for conserving.
