Rain Garden Workshop

Monday, April 16, 2018

Calling all gardeners! Are you curious about whether a rain garden is right for your yard? Rain gardens are more than just beautiful landscaping – these inexpensive and relatively simple installations absorb rainfall, filter pollutants from rainwater, and provide important habitat for pollinators. The Colchester Conservation Commission is hosting a rain garden workshop on Monday, April 16 at 6:30PM at the Bayside Activity Center in Bayside Park and we invite you to join us. Jeff Young, a Master Gardener with the University of Vermont Extension, will be here to share the secrets to a successful rain garden installation. Come learn about the best plants The event is free and all are welcome, though we ask that if you plan to attend you register with staff to make sure enough educational materials will be on hand. Please contact Karen Adams at 802-264-5621 or kadams@colchestervt.gov to reserve your spot!
