Gardens are not only beautiful, but can serve an essential purpose! In this six-class series, you will learn how to create a rain garden that soaks up the water from impervious surfaces around your house. Learn which native plants are the best at cleaning and capturing storm water. Each class participant will receive a design manual and resources to custom design and implement a personal garden plan. We will review the Cedar Rapids incentive program, and learn how to build your own rain barrel and connect it to your downspouts. We’ll also tour examples of rain garden projects around town. Price includes all six classes and materials. Pre-registration required. M $50; NM $60.
