On Thursday May 6th from 6:30pm to 8pm, the Central Ohio Rain Garden Initiative will present information on rain gardens at the Grange Insurance Audubon Center in Columbus. Homeowners, businesses, and local organizations are invited to attend this workshop to learn about the benefits, design, and installation of rain gardens. Sierra Club Ohio Chapter will provide 10 rain garden kits as door prizes for attendees! An Audubon Center staff member will be available to talk about the Center, and there is a wonderful rain garden example on-site.

If you have ordered a rain garden kit through Franklin Soil and Water’s Tree Sale (www.franklinswcd.org), this would be a good chance to get some more information on planning and last minute ideas before you plant your plants.
