Carolyn Thayer, landscape designer and owner of Designs on Bloom, will offer a presentation on Creating a Rain Garden at Trinity Lutheran Church, 955 James Street in Frankfort. Managing all run off on-site is the best way to protect surface water and recharge the groundwater. Using Michigan native plants with their deep roots to process water is a simple and beautiful solution. The program will cover how to create a rain garden on a residential property fed by roof runoff, hard surface run off, or foot-washing/outdoor shower runoff!
On Friday, September 21, 10 am – 11:30 am . There will be a field trip to see rain gardens in various stages from a mature setting at Gateway Village, 210 Day Ave, Frankfort, MI, that processes all run off on site to protect Betsie Bay; then to a newer installation at the Frankfort Beach parking lot on Crystal Lake, and additional residential properties.
