An upcoming workshop.
Well the rain is here in full force and much needed after those long dry summer months. But what happens when there is too much rain?

Currently our stormwater rushes into pipes and goes straight into rivers or out to sea, carrying all sorts of pollutants and rubbish with it, causing erosion, killing precious eco systems and polluting our beaches.

A simple solution is a raingarden which is a way of holding stormwater runoff in your own backyard, filtering and absorbing  runoff before it is released back into the stormwater system.

I will be taking a two-hour workshop on July 17th from 10:30am to 12:30pm @ Ecomatters in New Lynn. See their website for more information and to register.

I will be demonstrating ways to store and treat stormwater in your own backyard, looking at design and materials available. I will have plants to show you that handle these specialised conditions.

Be in quick as numbers are limited.
