A free two-day workshop on design and creation of Rain Gardens for K-12 Educators, School Garden Coordinators, County representatives, and the interested public will be presented at UHMC by the Sustainable Living Institute of Maui (SLIM), the Water Institute for Sustainability Education (WISE), and Roth Ecological Design International LLC.

On April 27 and 28, from 9am to 4pm, attendees will learn the ins and outs of rain gardens and how they can be applied as tools in the management of storm water.  The second day will be completely hands-on, as attendees learn teaching strategies while helping with the installation of a rain garden in the new SLIM UHMC Community Garden at UHMC. 

The instructor, Lauren Roth, of Roth Ecological Design International, works exclusively in creative water management.  She has won numerous prizes for her innovative designs for beautiful and effective storm water harvesting. 

The first day of the workshop will be held in a classroom, and the second day will be held in the SLIM Community Garden. Attendees can sign up for either day or both days.  Call 984-3379 to register and for further information.
