This free workshop is intended for educators who wish to learn more about rain garden design, installation, maintenance and plant selection. The first portion of the workshop will be an informative session complete with all the information needed to create and install a rain garden at your school! Participants will also help to install a rain garden at Lake Carolina Elementary School.
What is a rain garden? A rain garden is a landscaped depression that allows rainwater runoff from impervious areas; such as rooftops, driveways and compacted lawn areas, the opportunity to infiltrate and be absorbed, reducing stormwater runoff and associated pollution. Rain gardens are a popular and attractive way for homeowners and schools to manage erosion and moisture control issues, beautify the home landscape, create wildlife habitat and protect clean water downstream.
