Rooting DC – Edible BayScapes and Rain Gardens Workshop
On February 23rd the Alliance’s DC team will be attending Rooting DC, a free all-day urban gardening forum that provides education about urban agriculture and food systems, cultivates health and protection of the environment, and builds community.
At 1:45 pm Queen Richardson, Alliance RiverSmart Program Assistant, will present on edible plants that are native to the DC metropolitan area. At this session, learn how to incorporate these plants into landscaping features such as rain gardens and BayScapes. Attendees will receive a take-home guide with more information on DC’s edible plants.
Please stop by the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay information table to learn more about stormwater and what you can do to protect the Chesapeake Bay watershed in your own backyard.
