An Alfresco Anapamu Adventure, Sat August 13, 10:00 AM-3:00 PM

 
Help to create a new path for rainwater into a front yard that will become a place of adventure for bees, and butterflies.. This hands-on workshop will be the beginning of the whole landscape transformation into a water wise cottage garden. This workshop is full. you can Register here for the waitlist if you are interested. 
 
We'll redirect rainwater from two downspouts into two mulch basins and create berms, which together will form the foundation of the rain garden to come. The August 13 workshop will focus on the earthworks and downspouts. Later this fall we will have another hands-on workshop to plant the pollinator-friendly native plants. Join us and be part of an outdoor adventure in water wise practices.

 

This will be a learning through doing workshop, with additional educational points reviewed during the break and lunch. If you want to learn more about rainwater harvesting into rain gardens before the workshop, please see
