The Scott Soil and Water Conservation District is hosting a free workshop at the Spring Lake Town Hall on Thursday, April 18 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. to teach you the basics of planting a raingarden. A raingarden is a small basin of colorful native plants that add beauty to your yard while collecting stormwater runoff from your roof, lawn, and driveway. The workshop will give you step-by-step instructions to help you successfully plan and plant a raingarden. An incentive of $250 to $750 may be available to help offset the costs of plants, compost and labor when you install your raingarden. The workshop is free, but registration is requested. Register here or by calling the Scott SWCD office at 952-492-5425.
