The term “rain garden” may be new to a lot of people. A rain garden mimics nature by letting rain water soak into the ground. It’s a garden bed planted in a shallow depression with plants specially adapted for dry and wet conditions.

The hands-on course is focused on creating beautiful landscapes that protect the environment and improve property. Participants in the in-depth and in-person class will learn to create a living rain garden. The class will cover all phases, from locating and designing to planting and maintaining a beautiful and functional rain garden. Students who attend all five classes and plant a rain garden will receive their Master Rain Gardener certification and a sign for their garden.
