Rain Garden Workshop
Rain gardens are one “green” way to capture fast moving rainwater that is coming off of your roof or across your driveway.
Date and Location
When (Date/Time)May 17, 2014, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Are you considering an addition on your home, building a patio, extending your driveway, or a similar project on your property? New regulations may mean that you will be required to partner these types of projects with a "green" practice. Rain gardens are one "green" way to capture fast moving rainwater that is coming off of your roof or across your driveway. This helps to prevent it from harming local streams. Rain gardens can also be beautiful additions to your yard!
The workshop will provide you with information on the need for rain gardens and how to install one on your property. Included in this half day workshop will be topics such as the importance of rain water management, how to design and install a rain garden, and a discussion on the best plants to use in these gardens. Anyone with a desire to install a rain garden or who is curious to learn more about "green" solutions to stormwater management is encouraged to attend. The workshop is free but registration is required.
This workshop is a part of the Greening the Lower Susquehanna Project of Penn State Extension, supported by a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. We are pleased to be joined by presenters from the Penn State Master Gardeners Program and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
