Water in the Urban Landscape: Rain Gardens and Curb-Cuts

Join Paul Mays, SixTwelve’s Director of Permaculture and botanist Phillip Koszarekz, of Super Awesome Landscaping, for a 3 hour workshop on creating a rain garden using street run-off water through the implementation of curb-cuts. Learn about passive water catchment basins and native plants and their ability to soak water into landscapes and to clean pollutants from street run-off. These retention basins can minimize flooding and erosion and keep harmful substances out of our waterways. They can also reduce home owner and city water cost and help to beautify our community and add valuable wildlife habitat. Cost for this three-hour workshop is $30 for non-members and $15 for members.
