As cities continue to develop, more hard surfaces such as rooftops, roadways and parking lots mean more stormwater and more water pollution. Rain gardens are landscape features that reduce stormwater runoff by collecting rain water and allowing it to soak into the soil.
In this class novice and experienced gardeners alike will learn the basics of rain garden design and construction, including how to determine the optimal size for the garden and how to locate it most effectively. Plant selection and garden planning are also included. Participants who live inside the Fort Wayne city limits may qualify for incentives including cash or plant discounts. Workshop taught by a landscape architect with assistance from City Utilities’ stormwater engineers.
Please bring a ruler, calculator, and the square footage of your property, house, and any other buildings (i.e. garage, shed, etc.). Light refreshments. Ages 18-adult.
Registration deadline: March 22. Min. 10. Max. 25. $15/public; $13/Conservatory volunteer or member. Held at Botanical Conservatory, 1100 S. Calhoun St. To register, call the Park Department at (260) 427-6000.
