Rain, Rain go...

....into my Rain Garden. On Thursday, May 11, at 7:00pm, Heritage Lake Garden Club will be hosting a rare evening meeting with guest speaker, Jenna Nees. Jenna is with Purdue Extension-Putnam County and will give a one hour power point presentation on the benefits of developing rain gardens on our properties where water collects. Imagine flowers instead of several days of standing water. Her presentation will cover the reasons for a rain garden and the plants used. The 7:00pm meeting will be held at the clubhouse in the upstairs board room.

Also that day, but in the morning, club members will gather at the Lincoln Hills Park shelter for a brief business meeting followed by the planting of live plants in the pollinator garden. We will meet at our usual 9:30am time. Please join us for either time but we particularly would like a good community turn out for the rain garden presentation. Any questions regarding either meeting may be directed to me, Lynn Forsgren at 916/849-9361. Leave a message and I will return your call ASAP.

Rain Gardens can also stem erosion by slowing the flow of water by allowing it to pool in an area so that it absorbs into the soil. Rain gardens could really help reduce the amount of siltation in the lake.
