As Summer approaches, the folks at RainWise are a Garden Celebration! This event features garden experts of all sorts and will benefit all Seattle residents with an interest in gardening.

You will:

  • be able to talk to an array of gardening, rainwater catchment and composting experts,
  • go on a garden tour to see a RainWise rain garden in action,
  • explore funding opportunities for rain gardens, cisterns and other green infrastructure solutions,
  • talk with homeowners who have been through the RainWise installation process,
  • meet with different RainWise contractors and have the chance to ask questions specific to your homes.

There will be activities for kids, giveaways and refreshments available!

About RainWise Rebates: With every storm, rain carries pollutants off our roofs, driveways and other hard surfaces to local creeks, Lake Washington and Puget Sound. Rain gardens and cisterns can help control this stormwater, but we need your help! In selected areas of Seattle, the City of Seattle and King County will pay up to 100 percent of the cost of installing rain gardens and cisterns on homeowners’ properties.

We recommend that you check your eligibility for a RainWise rebate in advance at https://700milliongallons.org/rainwise/eligibility.

Register for any RainWise event to be entered into our giveaway! Prizes include plants, Gardening in Summer-Dry Climates: Plants for a Lush, Water-Conscious Landscape, and a Chinook Book. Winners notified June 16th by e-mail.
