Wednesday, June 5th | 6:30pm-7:30pm | Rain Gardens: A How-To for Homeowners


Come and learn how you can help protect local water quality by planting a rain garden in your yard. Homeowners can disconnect the downspouts on their house and direct the rainwater from their roof to a rain garden where the water soaks into the ground and waters the plants. This class will teach everything you need to know from learning about your soils, doing a design and selecting plants. All participants will receive a reusable shopping bag and rain garden plant seeds for their homes.

This class will take place at Rochester Brainery, located at 176 Anderson Ave. F109, Rochester, NY 14607.
