Workshops on How to build Raingardens!


We did it! Sustainable Seattle’s Sustainable Rain is celebrating the installation of five new rain gardens in the Central District, White Center, West Seattle, and two different locations in Beacon Hill. Check them out!

Now we are holding workshops in each of the neighborhoods: learn how to build a raingarden and apply for scholarships to build a rain garden in your yard or on your business property at these workshops.

All of the events are free, and please register!
