Design and Build Your Own Rain Garden March 18!

Posted on March 5, 2021

As last month’s record-breaking snowfall melts, water rushes across our lawns, streets, and sidewalks, pick up pollutants, and carry them into waterways. Polluted runoff poses a serious threat to our clean streams, lakes, and rivers — but there is something you can do to help.

Rain gardens are one of the best solutions to preventing stormwater pollution at home, as they help naturally filter pollutants out of the rainwater that flows from your property before it enters our waterways.

Join us for a virtual workshop to learn more about rain gardens and how you can build one at home!




When you attend, you’ll have the opportunity to sign up for a 30-minute consultation where you’ll work one-one one with a Rutgers landscape architect to plan a customized rain garden for your property.

Participants who build a rain garden as part of this program may be eligible for a rebate of $3/square foot up to $450, or help from Rutgers with installation. Rebate availability may vary. To find out if you qualify for a rebate, you can search your address in our map.

If you have questions, please reach out to Isabella Castiglioni at, or call 609-859-8860 ext. 128.

We hope to see you virtually!
