with Rebecca Jacobs, program manager from the Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District

Learn about rain gardens and other water management techniques for your property

Thursday, February 2, 2023, at 6 p.m., on Zoom, the All of Belfast Climate Dialogues (ABCD) project of the Belfast Free Library will host Rebecca Jacobs, program manager from the Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District for a presentation, “Rain Gardens and Other Water Management Techniques for Your Property.”

Do you have excess water on your property following a rain event? A rain garden could be an effective and attractive solution for helping to direct and infiltrate the runoff or pooling on your property. Learn the ins and outs of properly installing a rain garden as well as other water management techniques that could benefit your property.

“The second ABCD Community Climate Conversation event October 18, 2022 on the topic of “Creating Resilience to Big Storms and Flooding” attracted an engaged audience of 40 citizens,” said ABCD, in a news release. “Attendees were energized by brainstorming actions the community could take together – most particularly the idea of creating a rain garden in a public location in Belfast and using it as an educational model.”

Please join us to learn more about creating a rain garden and other water management techniques on your property and in community spaces.
