World Water Day 2016

As a gardener, I am a proud owner of a water barrel. I will attempt to grow heirloom beans from seeds for the first time this year. March being the month that contains World Water Day it is a time to think about water, conserving it, using it and keeping our water safe.

From UN World Water Day
"World Water Day is an international observance and an opportunity to learn more about water related issues, be inspired to tell others and take action to make a difference. World Water Day dates back to the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development where an international observance for water was recommended. The United Nations General Assembly responded by designating 22 March 1993 as the first World Water Day. It has been held annually since then. Each year, UN-Water — the entity that coordinates the UN’s work on water and sanitation — sets a theme for World Water Day corresponding to a current or future challenge. The engagement campaign is coordinated by one or several of the UN-Water Members with a related mandate."
