How to Build a Raingarden workshop April 16

how to build a raingarden webinar april 16

Looking to add some color to your yard?

Want to help reduce pollutants in your neighborhood?

Or do you have a wet spot that just won’t go away?

We can help!

The Scott SWCD is hosting a free introductory workshop to teach you the basics of creating a raingarden. A raingarden is a small basin of colorful native plants that add beauty to your yard while collecting storm water runoff from your roof, lawn, and driveway. They can be tailored to fit whatever dimensions your property has, and are a great way to add pollinator habitat.

When: Tuesday, April 16th


Where: Shakopee Public Library

The workshop will give step-by-step instructions to help you successfully plant a raingarden, and provide you with examples of completed projects done right here in Scott County. The course will be taught by Scott SWCD Natural Resource Specialists, Meghan Darley and Hannah Plonsky.

If you live in Scott County, incentives of $2/sq ft up to $1,000 may be available to help offset the costs of plants, compost, and labor when you install your raingarden. The workshop is free, but an RSVP is requested. Register on the Scott SWCD's registration page or by calling Shelby Roberts at the Scott SWCD office at 952-492-5448.
