Thursday, Mar. 18, 6:00-900 pm

Northfield Community Education, Northfield High School, H124

Free class! City rain gardens with their native plants beautify your lawn while also capturing and cleaning stormwater before it enters our rivers and lakes. What’s more, the City of Northfield and Dakota County will reimburse homeowners for part of the cost of installing a rain garden. Join Cannon River Watershed Partnership (CRWP) and City of Northfield staff to learn about the benefits of rain gardens, and how to plan and install your own rain garden. You’ll learn where to put a rain garden, how to choose the right plants, and what city and county cost-share programs exist to help you pay for the rain garden. Please bring your questions, your ideas, and your face masks to this in-person class. This class is sponsored by the City of Northfield.
