FREE Rain Garden Classes around Puget Sound from January through April

A rain garden is a shallow depression in a yard planted with a variety of flowers, shrubs and grasses that "don’t mind getting their feet wet." Learn how rain gardens help soak up rainwater from downspouts, driveways, and sidewalks, while protecting our local waterways. When planted with the right types of plants, rain gardens also attract birds, butterflies and bees.

You’ll receive a FREE rain garden manual and additional materials. You’ll also have a chance to start designing your own rain garden during the class! There are opportunities to gain further hands-on experience by helping create rain gardens later in the summer.
