MANSFIELD, Ohio – Richland Soil and Water Conservation District in partnership with Kingwood Center Gardens is hosting a free rain garden and rain barrel workshop on March 22, 2022. The workshop begins at 6:00 p.m. in Roost Hall at Kingwood Center Gardens, located at 50 N. Trimble Road in Mansfield.
Park along N. Linden Road and enter Kingwood through the Linden Road gate. The workshop is free and open to the public. Registration is encouraged due to limited seating. Please register at https://richlandswcd.net/get-involved/calendar.
The purpose of the workshop is to increase awareness and provide an opportunity to learn about the importance of stormwater management and the role Rain Gardens and Rain Barrels play in managing stormwater. Participants will also learn how Kingwood Center Gardens uses their Rain Garden and Rain Barrels.
Harvesting rainwater conserves water and helps prevent stormwater runoff and pollution from entering our waterways. The collected water may be used to water yards and gardens.
Native plants in Rain gardens are beneficial to pollinators. Plus, they allow the soil to absorb water, which helps prevent stormwater runoff and soil erosion and provides a beautiful natural area.
Questions about the workshop may be directed to Dan at 419-747-8077 or Jordan at 419-747-8688 or via email at Contact@Richlandswcd.net.
