South Carolina Native Plant Certificate Elective: Rain Gardens


Friday, October 25

Join us for a hands-on elective workshop for all those interested in rain garden design, installation, and native plant selection. Rain gardens are landscaped depressions that collect water runoff and allow it to infiltrate, thereby reducing erosion and flooding. These low maintenance native plant gardens can be constructed at nearly any home site.

The workshop will focus on these topics:.

• Benefits of rain gardens.

• Rain garden design, construction, and maintenance.

• Native plant selection.

The workshop will include the installation of a rain garden at the SC Botanical Garden, so be prepared to plant and get dirty! We will also learn some bog gardening basics. Taught by Dr. Sarah White, Clemson U., Kathy Bridges, SCBG, and Cathy Reas Foster, SCNPS.
