Purdue Rainscaping Education Program

#var:page_name# cover

This 2-day workshop will teach participants about site selection and analysis, plant selection, landscape design, and maintenance of a rain garden. There will be a tour of rain gardens in Angola and on day two, the participants will help install a rain garden at Pokagon's Trine State Recreation Area.

Rainscaping includes the use of sustainable landscape design and management practices at both the household and community scales to prevent polluted runoff from reaching water bodies by directing stormwater to be absorbed by plants and soils. Community water quality potentially affected by homeowner landscape management practices could be improved through increased community education and implementation assistance of rainscaping best management practices.
