If you have ever been interested in incorporating a rain garden into your landscape then consider attending our workshop. Maybe you’re not even sure what purpose a rain garden serves and would like to learn more. The workshop will take place at Fort Laurens State Memorial site on Tuesday May 10 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Tuscarawas SWCD staff, along with knowledge and assistance from Kyle Valentini, will explain the benefits of a rain garden and show the basics of planning and construction. Then participants will have the chance to help plant the flowers while keeping size, color, and bloom time in consideration. Come out to learn about rain gardens and exercise your green thumb. If you have any questions contact Jenny at Tuscarawas SWCD at 330-339-7976.
