Wetherby Park Edible Forest | directions

What is a rain garden and how can it help you…

  • Decrease erosion
  • Improve wet areas
  • Create a self-watering landscape

During this free, hands-on class, you will learn the basics of properly designing, placing and establishing a rain garden. A small rain garden will be created in the Wetherby Edible Forest to demonstrate its benefits.

If you plan to help establish the garden, please wear standard gardening attire: jeans, hat, gloves.

Informational handouts and yummy snacks will be provided by New Pioneer. Free tours of the edible forest will also be provided.
