Sue Cubberly of the Rain Garden Network will talk about the function and aesthetics of this practical gardening techniquethat prevents damaging water run-off.

Wildflowers, grasses, sedges, shrubs and trees help create suitable landscapes for any setting utilizing rain water for useful purposes instead of causing problems or draining into the streets or sewer systems.
