New Year’s Resolution #1: Become a Master Rain Gardener
Train as a Master Rain Gardener – add another skill to your portfolio – and become a resource for your neighborhood by keeping river water clean! Rain Gardens filter and cool storm water 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. The Washtenaw County Water Resources office has been building rain gardens for 8 years, and has built more than 140 rain gardens – we can pass along what we have learned to you. Visit the Master Rain Gardener Hall of Fame (photos).
Thursday mornings 9:30am-12:30, February 27 – March 27, 2014.
Attendees must attend all five classes, and plant a rain garden to receive their Master Rain Gardener certificate.
