Take a Master Rain Gardener Class and become a Blue Thumb!

The Washtenaw County Rain Garden program has been building and planting rain gardens for 6 years, and in that time, has learned a thing or two about what makes themResidential Rain Gardensuccessful. They would like to pass along these skills to others who may want to design and plant rain gardens, thereby spreading the word in the tradition of the MSU Extension’s Master Gardener program.

Please come train with us to be a Master *Rain* Gardener.

Rain Gardens clean and cool stormwater so that our streams and rivers run clean.  It is a nonpoint solution for nonpoint source pollution.  Anyone can plant one in their own back yard.
