July 15th - Green Drinks - Rain Gardens

July Green Drinks will be sponsored by the City of Everett in partnership with the Snohomish Conservation District and Washington State University Snohomish County Extension.  We will tour several rain gardens installed as part of Everett’s rain garden rebate program.

Join us for a guided tour of the rain gardens starting at 5:30 pm.   Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer gardening questions.
Tour will begin at 1015 Oakes Ave, Everett, Washington.

Rain gardens are shallow depressions that use soils and plants to manage runoff from impervious areas such as roofs.  A rain garden can hold several inches of stormwater and allow it to slowly seep into the ground.  They can be shaped and sized to fit a wide variety of yards and improve the appearance of your home.
