What’s all the talk about ‘rain gardens’? Can I actually do this in my own garden? What are the benefits? Capturing rain water runoff from impervious surfaces is a means of stabilizing ground and surface water resources. It also provides an aesthetically pleasing garden space and wildlife habitat.
This timely presentation will help you learn the ins and outs of both the theory and the creation of your own rain garden. Ned Siegel retired from a career as a research scientist in 2006 and became a St. Louis Master Gardener the following year. He currently serves on the organization’s Speakers Bureau and is chairing its Advisory Committee. Ned also volunteers in the gardens at Bellefontaine Cemetery. In addition, due to an interest in native plant ecosystems, he also became a certified Illinois Master Naturalist in 2009.
