Want to stop having standing water in your yard? Live near a waterbody and want to reduce polluted runoff and recharge water supplies? Want to create bird and butterfly habitats? These are just some of the potential benefits of building a rain garden on your property! Learn how to build a rain garden that helps save our water and makes your property even more attractive to homebuyers and wildlife! Samantha Woods, of the North and South Rivers Watershed Association, will lead this hands-on interactive workshop where she will design a rain garden for the library! If you want to try to design one at the workshop bring a sketch of your property with dimensions if possible (she will also show you how to look up online) with septic leaching field and drinking water wells located on the sketch if applicable.
A free rain barrel will be givento one lucky attendee!
