Become a Master Rain Gardener: Online Class

Event Description:

Train to become a Master Rain Gardener! Take the class from your own computer or phone. A link to join the online class will be sent via e-mail before class starts. Learn to design your own rain garden step-by-step and get expert feedback on designing, digging and planting. Then, share your knowledge and become your neighborhood's expert on rain gardens.

Rain Gardens capture and soak in the rainwater that runs off hard surfaces like roofs and driveways. This rainwater runoff picks up dirt and is the #1 source of pollution in rivers. Anyone can plant a rain garden in their own yard. You must attend all 5 online classes, and build a rain garden to earn the Master Rain Gardener certification. Field trip TBD. Hosted by Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner's Office. Instructors: Susan Bryan, Rain Garden Coordinator; Harry Sheehan, Deputy Water Resources Commissioner; Shannan Gibb-Randall, Principal at InSite Design Studio, Inc.
