The NC Botanical Garden, the Town of Chapel Hill, and the N.C. Cooperative Extension invite you to participate in a rain garden workshop hosted at the Carolina Community Garden (CCG). The workshop will be led by stormwater expert Mitch Woodward. It will cover all aspects of rain garden design, plant selection, and care, and will provide participants hands-on experience in rain garden installation on-site at the CCG. As a part of Orange County Creek Week, participants will learn how to create beautiful rain gardens as an option for dealing with stormwater in residential properties and communities. Additionally, Allison Weakley, a Town of Chapel Hill stormwater analyst and botanist, will be present to answer participants’ questions regarding choosing native plants for your own rain garden.
