RAIN GARDENS TO THE RESCUE
A rain garden is a shallow depression in the ground planted with native plants that tolerate varying water levels and weather conditions. The garden is designed to hold rainwater on site temporarily so that it infiltrates the soil rather than running off into storm drains. The Rain Gardens to the Rescue program is a series of workshops designed to teach residents about rain gardens, so they can plant their own garden and educate neighbors and family to do the same.
