Homeowner Rain Garden Workshop Join us on Saturday, February 10, 2018, from 9:30 am until noon for a rain garden workshop. Learn how to properly locate, design, construct and maintain a small-scale rain garden–a landscaped area that is designed to capture rain water and allow it to soak into the ground. Rain gardens allow polluted runoff from roads and buildings to infiltrate into the ground, slowing its flow and preventing pollutants from reaching local streams and the Potomac River, a drinking water supply for the region. The event will be held at the Providence Community Center, 3001 Vaden Drive, in Fairfax. The workshop is free, but registration is required.
