Join us to learn some tips for helping care for rain gardens. Ramsey County Master Gardener co-presenters Tiffa Foster and Simba Blood will explore varieties of plants suited for rain gardens and discuss tips for identifying and managing weeds. Attendees will learn more about some of the most common native plants seen in urban rain gardens and will gain new gardening and maintenance tips.
