Registration open for 2-day rainscaping workshop

Article provided

Rainscaping is a combination of sustainable landscape design and management practices that prevents polluted runoff from reaching water bodies — directing stormwater to be absorbed by plants and soils. The Purdue Rainscaping Education Program provides training and resources on rainscaping practices that can be installed in residential settings or small-scale public spaces projects. 

The sessions include an introduction to Rainscaping (with site visit to Whitley County Rain Garden), site selection & analysis, plant selection & garden design, installation and maintenance, and we wrap up with a hands-on rain garden installation project. 

The Rainscaping Education Program is offered by Purdue Extension and the Noble County Public Library on April 19th & 20th from 9a.m.-5 p.m. on both days. The $95 registration fee includes lunch and snacks both days, a PDF Participant Guide (or you have option to purchase hardcopy), a personal copy of the Blue Thumb Guide, and many more resources.

Questions can be directed to Reba Wicker ( or Ann Kline (
