Sign up for the rain garden workshop on March 19

Rain gardens are a great way to beautify your property and a great way to capture and clean up stormwater before it flows into the Cannon River. Staff from the Cannon River Watershed Partnership (CRWP) and City of Northfield are teaching a workshop on rain gardens on Thursday, March 19, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Community Action Center, 1651 Jefferson Pkwy HS-200.

Residents will learn about the benefits of rain gardens, where to put a rain garden, how to choose the right plants, and how to plan and install a rain garden on their property. They will also find out how the City of Northfield clean water programs may be able to reimburse them for part of their project.

Residents can sign up through Northfield Community Education under Adult Enrichment- General Interest:
