When: November 4th, 4:00pm – 5:00 pm

Visit Common Good's rain garden and learn how to design your own as an attractive way to prevent water run-off from polluting our watersheds. Dean Hively, a scientist from the US Geological Survey, will talk about the relevance and importance of diverting water run-off, and plants that thrive in rain gardens. They will have bergamot, liatrus blazing star, blue flag iris, and calamus for sale.
