Gardening For Rain, Re-Visioning Your Yard on February 22nd, 2011

Feb 22

Transition Town Media, the Media Environmental Advisory Council (EAC), and the Stroud Water Research Center are co-sponsoring a talk by Vivian Williams on “Gardening for Rain – Re-Visioning Your Garden“. Media and many other towns in the Chester-Ridley-Crum watershed have huge problems with stormwater flooding and the degradation of streams receiving all this water. But you can help keep the water where it will do the most good, in your yard. Hear about the practical application of rain gardens, rain barrels, and pervious pavers and get a chance to think about your own garden design.

Ms. Williams is on the Stroud Water Research Center staff and serves as an Educational Consultant for the Philadelphia Water Department. She has extensive experience interpreting scientific concepts for the public through public presentations, professional development and community workshops, curriculum development, and product design. She also serves on the Media EAC.

The presentation will be held Tuesday, February 22nd, from 7-9 pm at the Media Borough Community Center 301 N. Jackson St., Media, PA.
