Establishing A Rain Garden – Clean up Our River, One Garden at a Time
Planting a Rain Garden is a fun way for people to make a difference in the quality of the water in our rivers and streams, starting in our own back yards.  You don’t need any special equipment – just some space, a spade, compost and a few plants.  Join us at the Master Rain Gardener table under the GREEN TENT for some individual advice on planting a rain garden in your yard.  We can talk about the benefits of Rain Gardens and how to build and plant one.  Bring your questions.  And find out how to become a Master Rain Gardener yourself!
