Learn how to design and build a rain garden with Ramsey Conservation District, Watershed District and Maplewood Nature Center experts. Tour the fun rainwater features at the Nature Center and discover what rain garden plants are popping up in mid-May. Identify soil types and determine how fast water soaks into your soil. Learn how to choose plants and get advice from technical staff and Master Gardeners in planning your rain garden design. Prior to the class you will be e-mailed or mailed a questionnaire and a worksheet to fill out including a drawing of your yard. Please complete these before the workshop and bring them with you to the class. At the workshop we will provide an aerial map of your site to use in planning your rain garden.
This free workshop is sponsored by Ramsey-Washington Metro Watershed District, Maplewood Nature Center, the City of Maplewood, Ramsey Conservation District and Blue Thumb.
