Blog : Plant a Rain Garden at Woodman Museum in Dover

By Madalyn | Oct 16, 2014 | in

Calling all green thumbs, conservationists, and anyone who enjoys digging in the dirt to help plant a rain garden. Join the Great Bay Stewards at the Woodman Museum in Dover on Tuesday Oct. 21 from 10:30 to 3:00 p.m. 

A rain garden gives rainwater runoff from urban areas the opportunity to be absorbed. There will be two shifts for people to participate either in the morning or in the afternoon; the first shift, the digging shift is from 10:30 - 12:00 pm. The second will be the planting and cleanup shift from 12:00 - 3:00 p.m.

The Stewards are partnering with the NH Department of Environmental Services (DES) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for this event. It will be a wonderful opportunity to get the whole family involved in planting a sustainable community garden. 

Bring gloves and your favorite shovel or spade, otherwise, all tools needed for the job will be available. Water and snacks will be provided to all those who participate. For more information please email Laura Byergo ( to RSVP.
