(Webinar) Bioswales and Rain Gardens

Wednesday, November 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

$15.00 – $32.00

Rainwater, though an unpredictable and fluctuating resource, is invaluable and freely available. When it comes, it may be too little or too much, but we shouldn’t waste the chance to grab it when we can.  The environmental advantages and the enhancement to gardens provided by retaining stormwater on-site are substantial.  Join Jennifer de Graaf, landscape architect (Lic. #5461) for a discussion about keeping rainwater on your property through the use of earth forming measures such as rain gardens, swales, and mulch pits. Additionally, we will delve into the specifics of plant selection and maintenance tailored to these sustainable approaches.

Please note that this will be a live Zoom lecture and not a lecture at the Garden. After registration (see below), you’ll receive a Zoom link and lecture outline from the Program Director one day prior to the lecture. Registration closes on 13 November 2024 at 8am

How it works: Register one person with one email at a time. If you would like to register multiple people, please register them each separately with separate emails.  The webinar will be recorded and all registrants will receive a recording link within one business day.  Once the recording is sent, you will have seven days to watch the lecture. Access to the webinar recordings after the expiration date will be a charge of $15 (members) / $32 (non-members).

Cancellation and refund policy can be found here.
