Protecting Watersheds: Rain Gardens in our Landscapes

There are so many great seminars and workshops this fall, that there is no excuse for the eco-friendly gardener to get bored! Here is another one I just found out about on Rain Gardens.

What: "Protecting Watersheds: Rain Gardens in our Landscapes"
Where: Common Good City Farm
When: Saturday, October 22, 2-4pm

"Come see Common Good City Farm's rain garden and learn how to design your own as an attractive way to prevent water run-off from polluting our watersheds. USGS scientist Dean Hively will talk about the relevance and importance of diverting water run-off, and plants that thrive in rain gardens. This workshop is free, but we are suggesting a $25 donation if you earn more than minimum wage."

Saturday, October 22, 2-4pm at Common Good City Farm, V. St, NW between 2nd and 4th Sts.
