Free Rain Garden Workshop

Rain gardens, also known as bioretention areas, are attractive landscape features that allow rain water and snow melt to infiltrate into the ground.  A layer of mulch and plants intercept water running off streets, driveways, and rooftops, slowing its flow and removing pollutants before the water reaches local streams, the Occoquan River and the Potomac River, drinking water supplies for the region.   

Come to this FREE workshop to learn about designing and planting a rain garden at your home! The workshop will take place on Saturday, February 10 from 9:30 to 12 Noon.
