Auburn University is planning a Rain Garden Certification workshop to provide information on how to design and install rain gardens on Dec 6 and 7 at the E.W. Shell Fisheries Center, 2101 North College St., Auburn, AL.
Registration information can be found at www.aces.edu/raingarden
Day one will focus on design basics for rain gardens, plant selection, maintenance, and we will install a rain garden at a local site in Auburn. On the second day attendees will take an exam and receive their certification. This is a remarkable learning opportunity and will provide landscape professionals with a certification from the Alabama Cooperative Extension System for the design and installation of rain gardens!
This workshop will provide landscape professionals (individuals, companies, or Municipal maintenance divisions that design, install, and maintain landscapes) with the opportunity to learn about how rain gardens can be used to capture, hold, and infiltrate stormwater runoff. Rain gardens are a great water quality best management practice that can be implemented at a residential or commercial scale.
