Come learn how to keep your rain garden flourishing for years to come!
Once a rain garden is designed and installed comes the real fun- caring for it properly to ensure years of successful stormwater management, pollinator habitat, and seasonal beauty. Join the Little Conestoga Watershed Alliance and the Chesapeake Conservation Landscaping Council for a Rain Garden Maintenance Workshop at the East Petersburg Community Gardens. Learn which maintenance tasks need to be done throughout the year to keep your rain garden infiltrating water and performing its best. This workshop will provide continuing education credits for certified Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professionals. Homeowners, contractors, designers, and installers are welcome!
- This workshop will be postponed in the event of bad weather.
- Please bring gloves, clippers, and trowels if available.
- Dress to be outside in the garden. Closed toe shoes recommended.
- Brings snacks and water.

What is Lancaster Water Week?
Now in its 6th year, Lancaster Water Week celebrates the 1,400 miles of streams and rivers in Lancaster County, PA. These cricks and creeks are the source of our drinking water, drive economic and agricultural growth, and allow us to escape into nature to fish, paddle, and swim. Many of these beautiful streams are polluted, but there is an incredible effort underway to bring them back to health in our lifetime.
Join us during Water Week for over 20 events as we paddle, stomp, explore, volunteer, and take action as a community to protect our streams and rivers for the future!
