Rain Garden workshop – Towson

September 26 @ 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Event Navigation

Registration for this event is closed (9/8/20). Please visit our online calendar of events to find information about other rain garden workshops this season. Thanks!

Note: Participants are expected to wear face masks during this event. The event will be held outdoors and adhere to our COVID-19 social distancing policy.

Rain gardens are a beautiful AND functional solution to stormwater runoff. Learn how to create one.

Join us for a FREE Rain Garden workshop and then get hands-on experience installing a rain garden at a private residence in Towson.

A rain garden is a special, water loving garden that helps soak up rain water from your roof or driveway.  It is designed to capture water from a 1” rain storm and slowly infiltrate it back into the ground. By using beautiful, native flowers, grasses and even trees, a rain garden will beautify your yard while reducing stormwater impacts.  It also provides habitat for wildlife, beneficial insects, such as ladybugs, and pollinators like butterflies.

No gardening experience necessary! A maximum of 10 people, including the homeowner and our staff, will be allowed to participate in this event. We are allowing minors (ages 10+) to attend our events as long as there is one parent/legal guardian per two children.
