Soak It Up: Plan your Personal Rain Garden

March 7, 2016 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM


It’s still cold outside, and it’s the perfect time to talk garden planning and how your garden can be not only be beautiful but serve an essential purpose. This three-class series will focus on ways to soak up the water from impervious surfaces around your house. Learn which native plants and forbs are the best at cleaning and capturing storm water in a rain garden. Each class participant will receive a design manual and resources to custom design and implement a personal garden plan. We will review the Cedar Rapids incentive program, and learn how to build your own rain barrel and connect it to your downspouts. We’ll also tour examples of other projects around town. 

Session I:  Monday, March 7, 6-8 PM
Session II: Monday, April 4, 6-8 PM
Session III: Monday, May 2, 6-8 PM 

Preregistration required; all three classes included in your registration.

Member Cost: $30
