Rain Garden Class

Build your own Raingarden: Homeowner Edition

Below you will find the class description. To register, please visit the SCC Continuing Education website Remote Site or contact Southeast Community College at 437-2700.

Have you ever wondered how to make a garden both beautiful and ecologically functional? Now you can! A rain garden is a garden of native perennials, grasses, and shrubs planted in a depression which captures rainwater runoff from your roof, driveway and patio. Rain gardens significantly reduce the amount of stormwater runoff and surface water pollution leaving your property. Please join us in this class to learn how to design, install, and choose plants for a rain garden, among other water quality topics. This class is interactive - the first half will be spent in the classroom and the second half installing an actual rain garden in Lincoln - so come prepared for digging! You will receive an illustrated handbook to take with you and all the knowledge you need to build a rain garden. This class is weather permitting and will be rescheduled on account of rain. Sponsored by City of Lincoln Watershed Management and the Nebraska Environmental Trust.
