Rain Garden Workshop for Homeowners
(08:30 AM - 12:00 PM)

Learn to soak up the rain at the Rain Garden Workshop for Homeowners held at the NHTI Campus in Concord, Student Center, in the Multi-Purpose Room.

 

What is a Rain Garden?

A rain garden is a shallow, bowl-shaped garden, similar to a perennial garden, that is designed to capture rainfall and snowmelt. Rain gardens help to keep nearby lakes and streams healthy and clean by soaking up the rain and pollutants found in stormwater.

 

Learn about site planning, rain garden placement, and size and how a rain garden works with Jillian McCarthy, Stormwater Coordinator, NH Dept of Environmental Services and about plant selection, design and installation from Dr. Cathy Neal, Extension Professor and Specialist in Landscape Horticulture, UNH Cooperative Extension.


There will be hands-on activity using design methods and techniques.

 

Attendees will receive a copy of the NH Homeowner's Guide to Stormwater Management, while supplies last.
