Join N.C. Cooperative Extension for a Rain Garden Workshop
Rain gardens are bowl-shaped areas that capture rainwater from roofs and other hard surfaces. They help remove pollutants, minimize runoff, and provide habitat for butterflies and other pollinators. Rain gardens can be integrated into existing landscapes or included in initial plans. To effectively manage stormwater, they must be accurately sized and properly constructed. This 1-day workshop will consist of a classroom presentation and an outdoor "hands-on" demonstration of proper construction techniques. Landscaper Contractor Credit will be offered. Home and business owners, property managers, and educators are also invited to attend. Environmental Education Certification, Criteria II, will be offered.
The workshop is free and lunch will be provided at no cost. Please join us on Wednesday, March 21, 2018 from 8:30 am - 4:00 pm at the Town of Kernersville Stormwater Division, 509 Michael Street, Kernersville, NC 27284. Space is limited and pre-registration is required at https://goo.gl/forms/pJQIBEYpjk677D3d2.
