The gardens irrigation system may not be as breathtaking as its beautiful flowers and plants, but its an essential element of the propertys management, and helped the garden be named as a finalist for Rain Birds 2009 Intelligent Use of Water Leadership Award. Rain Bird is a manufacturer and provider of irrigation products and services. Judges recognized the botanical garden for its commitment to high performance and the integration of sustainable green building practices. By adopting the water use goals for LEED Gold Certification, the garden is a leader in freshwater conservation and management. Its design includes numerous water conservation features, such as parking lot bioswales and the River of Grass garden, which acts as a natural filtration system. Four other gardens in the United States are finalists for the third annual award, including Hui o Ko'olaupoko in Kailua, Hawaii, and Queens Botanical Garden in Flushing, N.Y. The winner will be announced at the WaterSmart Innovations Conference and Exposition in Las Vegas on Oct. 8, where it will be awarded $10,000SEE BOTANICAL, A16 getting rid of the... may not be as hard as you thinkBY BILL CORNWELLbcornwell@ T THE AGE OF 76, AMRIT DESAI, ONE OF THE WORLDS LEADing yogi masters, has lived long enough to see his teachings about dealing with stress move from the fringe of American thought to a place closer to the intellectual middle ground. Yogi Desai, whose workshop later this month on coping with stress is sponsored by The Rotary Club of Naples, acknowledges that skepticism about his use of yoga, breathing techniques and meditation remains rooted to some degree in an American society that is oriented toward quick fixes facilitated by the liberal use of a physicians prescription pad. People are looking for an easy solution to the real problem that is so hidden and so deep in the unconscious mind, he says as he sits for an interview in the lobby of the Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club.
