Rain gardens differ from conventional gardens because they are dug out and filled with a special soil/compost mixture, enabling the garden to act like a sponge. Learn step by step how to construct a rain garden to maximize its ability to capture water, while also enhancing and beautifying your outdoor space!

Join us anytime between 12pm – 4pm. Everyone is welcome to help out or just come to observe the process! Regardless, please remember to wear closed toed shoes and dress for the weather!
