Rain garden class at Guilderland library
Learn about rain gardens on Saturday, Feb. 27, at 10:30 a.m, at the Guilderland Public Library, 2228 Western Ave., Guilderland.
Cornell Cooperative Extension horticulture educator Susan Pezzolla will show how this green infrastructure practice works and will help you decide if this is a good feature for your yard.
Rain gardens are small, shallow depressions that collect storm water runoff. Water is cleaned as it filters down through the soil to the local aquifer. The gardens provide food for birds and pollinators and fit well with the local environment, using native plants that can withstand the extremes of drought and excess water.
Upcoming classes in the series are: Organic Vegetable Gardening Basics on March 5 and The Nitty Gritty of Soil – Beyond the pH on March 12.
The snow date for Rain Gardens will be on March 26 at 10:30 a.m.
