Special to 1812Blockhouse
Richland Soil and Water Conservation District, in partnership with The Cove Coffee Shop and Pizza Company, is hosting a free rain garden and rain barrel workshop on August 31.
The workshop begins at 6:00 p.m. at The Cove Coffee Shop and Pizza Company, located at 325 Shelby-Ontario Rd in Ontario. The workshop is open to the public and although free, registration is required by August 29 due to limited seating. Please register at https://richlandswcd.net/get-involved/calendar/rain-garden-and-rain-barrel-workshop-2.
The purpose of the workshop is to increase awareness and educate the public about the importance of stormwater management and the role Rain Gardens and Rain Barrels play in managing stormwater.
Harvest rainwater from your roof into Rain Barrels to water yards and gardens. They not only help prevent stormwater runoff and pollution from entering our waterways but help conserve water.
Native plants in Rain gardens are beneficial to pollinators and help soil absorb water to help prevent stormwater runoff and soil erosion. Another benefit is the potential beauty you’re creating.
Questions about the workshop may be directed to Dan at 419-747-8077 or Jordan at 419-747-8688 or via email at [email protected].
