A Presentation By Shelkie Tao

Rain Garden 2 fix sm2When it rains and all the raindrops fall on our roof, have you thought about where the rainwater go to?  Well, most of it just goes down the sewer, into the creeks and rivers, and eventually out to the ocean.  In the past, stormwater was viewed as a something akin to waste; something we’d get rid of as soon as possible.  Not any more.  After the historic drought of the last 5 years, everyone realizes how valuable water – in any source or form – is.  When it comes to rainwater, in addition to rain barrels, there is another great and more direct way to capture and use it.  Better yet, it can be turned into beauty in your garden.  How? Come join the discussion and find out more.
