Rain Gardens and Other Water Management Techniques for Your Property

February 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A presentation with  Rebecca Jacobs of the Knox-Lincoln  Soil & Water Conservation District. 

Do you have excess water on your property following a rain event? A rain garden could be an effective and attractive solution for helping to direct and infiltrate the runoff or pooling on your property. Learn the ins and outs of properly installing a rain garden as well as other water management techniques that could benefit your property.

At our second ABCD Community Climate Conversation event on October 18th, on the topic of “Creating Resilience to Big Storms and Flooding”, attracted an engaged audience of 40 citizens. Attendees were energized by brainstorming actions the community could take together – most particularly the idea of creating a rain garden in a public location in Belfast and using it as an educational model.

We are excited to have lined up this follow-up event about rain gardens on February 2, 2023 (with snow date of February 9), “Rain Gardens and Other Water Management Techniques for Your Property” with presenter Rebecca Jacobs of the Knox County Soil & Water Conservation District. Mark your calendars for Thursday, February 2 at 6:00 PM at the Belfast Free Library, and in the meantime, let’s get excited to plan a community rain garden!
