WALPOLE, N.H. — Throughout New Hampshire, neighbors are planting trees and gardens, building rain barrels and trenches, all to keep runoff from rainstorms and pollution from entering the water bodies they love. Join the Cheshire County Conservation District and Soak Up the Rain NH on August 11th at 5pm for a virtual workshop to discuss how a beautiful addition to your property can positively impact your community!
In this virtual workshop led by Lisa Loosigian of SOAK up the Rain NH, you’ll learn about how you can benefit your community and local water quality by installing a rain garden. This workshop will cover education about rain gardens, how they work, how they’re installed, and provide attendees with other helpful resources on how to soak up the rain!
