Rain Garden Workshop and Tour

Would you like to learn how to make your own rain garden? Join us at the offices of West Michigan Environmental Action Council, and we will tell you how! Enjoy a one-hour rain garden presentation and two-hour area tour of local rain gardens. Our building is first in the nation to be double-gold LEED certified. It is the first zero stormwater discharge commercial site in the city (green roof AND rain garden!).

The $35 fee supports the rain garden program (pay at the door).

9 a.m.-10 a.m., rain garden workshop; learn about rain gardens, ideas for creating your own, the beautiful native plants you can use and where to get them, and more. Enjoy delicious fair-trade coffee, local bagels and cream cheese.

10:30 a.m.-noon, carpool tour of the beautiful rain gardens at sites near our offices and see our green roof! If it's raining, bring your umbrella and see them in action. Map provided.
