When: Thursday, December 5, 6:30-8:30 pm
Where: Olbrich Botanical Gardens
Join Madison Area Permaculture Guild Founder Kate Heiber-Cobb and learn how to construct swales and berms, rain gardens, and other water catchment devices in your landscape. These holding methodologies help our community deal with water issues and can be used for growing plants. She will discuss why you want to hold water where it falls, how this practice relates to healthy soil, how it refills our aquifers, and much more. Bring drawing/sketch paper, pencil, and eraser for beginning to create a plan for your landscape with guidance from the instructor. Limited space; register early. To register, call Olbrich at (608)246-4550.
