Master Rain Gardener 5-week Course Available To Residents

In collaboration with several conservation organizations in Northeast Ohio, Chagrin River Watershed Partners is offering the 5-week Master Rain Gardener course again in 2020. This course will teach you how to install rain gardens on a residential scale.

Rain gardens naturally manage stormwater by infiltrating precipitation and allowing it to soak into the ground rather than sending it directly to storm sewers and nearby streams untreated. Experienced instructors will provide customized feedback which will enable you to design and install a rain garden. Topics will include site assessment, soil analysis, design, construction, plant selection, mulching, and maintenance.  

This five-week course is open to residents and landscape professionals in Northeast Ohio and can be taken in-person or online. Each course offers a two-track option, where participants can choose to receive a residential or a professional Master Rain Gardner certification. Both residential track and professional track graduates will receive a Master Rain Gardener t-shirt, yard sign, and a certificate of completion. Professionals will also have the option to be listed on a public website of Northeast Ohio Professional Master Rain Gardeners.

 The online course begins on February 3rd and the in-person course begins on July 30th. Registration is open now!
