Don’t miss Amy Roskilly discussing rain gardens April 11

Our program at the April 11th meeting will be RAIN GARDENS, presented by the knowledgeable and engaging Amy Roskilly, Conservation Education Specialist with the Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District. Rain gardens are attractive, landscaped areas planted with perennial native plants that don’t mind getting “wet feet.” They are beautiful gardens, built in depressions, designed to capture and filter stormwater runoff from impervious surfaces around the home, such as rooftops and driveways.

All are welcome. Refreshments served. Questions:  216-671-6777.

Laurel Garden Club meets at 7:00 P.M. in the Community Room of the Brooklyn Fire Station, 8400 Memphis Avenue.
