Event description
Learn about how to design your rain garden to ensure you are eligible for the City of Guelph's rain garden rebate program.

About this Event

This workshop will focus on how to plan and build your own rain garden and reap their benefits. Rain gardens attract pollinators and can even help to reduce flood risks in your neighbourhood. You will also learn about how to design your rain garden to ensure you are eligible for the City of Guelph's rain garden rebate program. Workshop participants will get first access to book a free Rain Garden Home Visit to get started on their rain garden and rebate application.

There are limited spots available for Rain Garden Visits on a first come, first served basis so it is strongly recommended to attend a workshop to reserve your spot.

Please note: this workshop and the rain garden rebate are ONLY open to City of Guelph residents. You only need to attend one of the offered dates.

Delivered in partnership with Reep Green Solutions. Reep Green Solutions is an environmental charity that helps people live sustainably. Their mission is to empower the community with the practical tools, knowledge and capacity for action to make sustainable living the norm.
