Reep Green Solutions is hosting a work party next Saturday (June 16th) here in the Mount Hope neighbourhood as part of the RAIN Smart Neighbourhoods project. Last weekend they had a successful work party in Lakeside, where Mount Hope resident Carolyn got her hands dirty in preparation for her upcoming rain garden installation!
They are asking the community to pitch in and help transform a patch of grass into a beautiful space that will attract pollinators and reduce run-off. You will be able to see first hand how to make the transformation on your own property while making a lasting contribution to the community.
Cost: FREE – please register to reserve your spot
Date/Time: Saturday, June 16, 10 am presentation (full agenda)
Location: Near Mount Hope (exact location enclosed in email confirmation after registering)
Workshop Description: RAIN Coach Becca Robinson will guide participants through the construction process. Learn step by step how to build a rain garden to maximize its ability to capture water, while also enhancing and beautifying your outdoor space!
Join us anytime between 9am – 3pm, remember to wear closed toed shoes and dress for the weather! No requirements to join the party, everyone is welcome to help out! Nothing is required for participation except an appetite as our host will be providing lunch for all volunteers.
