This Rain Garden Workshop will teach you how to build and maintain a Rain Garden yourself and how to help build rain gardens in your community. You can sign up for later opportunities to gain hands on experience by helping build our late spring rain gardens or apprenticing by assessing potential locations and designing rain gardens.  Presented by Darby Creek Valley Association, Eastern Delaware County Stormwater Collaborative and Hav-a-Rain Garden who have designed and built more than 60 rain gardens in the region at parks, libraries and private properties. Free, 

Rain Gardens reduce flooding and storm water pollution, improving water quality in our streams and rivers for aquatic life and recreational users. 

Build and maintain your own garden! 

 Help to Protect our Waterways!

What is a Rain Garden?

Beautiful landscaped areas built down, instead of up, intercepting runoff from buildings, driveways and other impervious surfaces before it can reach the storm sewers and streams. Small gardens are typically 6-12 inches deep and drain within a day or two after a rain. Plants are water and drought tolerant and need little or no watering after they are established..

This is a free event , advance registration is required
