Rain gardens are some of the hardest-working and most beautiful gardens around!
Rain gardens are built to capture excess rainwater, giving it a place to go so that it soaks into the ground. That means that Rain Gardens help prevent flooding. They protect our local creeks, streams, and rivers from polluted stormwater too. These special rain gardens are full of native plants that are really good at soaking up a lot of water, and look beautiful also.
Is it hard to build a rain garden? Not really! Come and join Friends of the Rouge and Sierra Club Michigan Chapter for an online event to learn about stormwater pollution and rain garden solutions! Hear from other rain gardeners and their personal experience learning about and creating their own beautiful and hard-working gardens.
We will also talk about upcoming 2023 community programming opportunities.
