2020 Rain Garden Workshops
Learn how to help make Detroit a greener, more sustainable city by preventing stormwater runoff and creating healthier communities. We invite you to join the Land + Water WORKS Coalition to learn about rain gardens this summer. A series of workshops will be held for 3 locations. You are welcome to participate in one or multiple workshops.
Attendees will learn how business, non-profit and faith-based institutions can manage rain water by implementing rain gardens and other practices to receive green credits from the Detroit Water & Sewage Department.
Please register and fill out a pre-screening health survey. Face masks are required to be worn at workshops. Please bring a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated.
