Tour of Local Rain Gardens & Stormwater Management Projects

Wednesday July 20th, 6:30pm-8pm
Hosted by the Takoma Horticultural Club
See how the fabulous Hancock Avenue Rain Garden is progressing, a year after its installation. Check out the sedum blooms and how they have spread on the Green Roof at the Takoma Park City Building.  Gaze wistfully at Cleveland Avenue's well-established rain garden and their use of pervious pavers.  Finish off at a member's house to view her above-ground cistern, rain garden, conservation landscaping, and those of her neighbors.  Guides and residents will answer questions about design, construction, native plants used,  and rationale for these methodologies.  Open to the public. FREE.
Meet at the Takoma City Building Maple Avenue at Philadelphia Avenue at 6:30. Walk or carpool from there. Walk to Hancock, carpool to Cleveland Avenue and then on to finish with a snack at Kit Gage's. Full directions at the meeting place.
