No rain, no gain
N.C. State University’s Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering is teaming up with Cooperative Extension to offer a two-day training program for Residential Rain Garden Certification April 23-24 at the Museum of Life and Science in Durham.
Rain gardens are man-made depressions in landscaping that collect water from downspouts and pavement, and then allow it to seep back into the earth without destructive erosion. The Rain Garden Certification training is designed for members of the Extension field staff with water quality or horticulture responsibilities as well as commercial and residential landscapers. There is an early bird discount now in effect that reduces the regular $175 tuition fee to $125.
