Virtual Field Studies Class: How to Care for Rain Gardens

Event Date:

Event Address:
Virtual Classroom

This virtual class focuses on the nuances of rain garden care and how to keep your water harvesting landscape happy, healthy, and long-lasting.

While this class is especially helpful for those new to plant care and garden maintenance in the Sonoran Desert, all are encouraged to attend. We will review

  • the benefits of rainwater harvesting
  • proper care of different plant types
  • how to identify and solve potential rain garden issues
  • what are typical plant establishment watering schedules
  • know seasonal plant needs, such as trimming & weeding
  • and more!

This fully-online class will provide both a presentation and multiple examples of rain gardens in the Tucson area with time for Q&A throughout and at the end. This class does not fulfill the requirements for the Tucson Water Rainwater Harvesting Rebate.
