Got Runoff? RCDs Host Stormwater Workshop for Local Residents


Time: 6-8pm

Apple Blossom School

700 Watertrough Rd, Sebastopol, CA 95472

Free to the public

How can we make the most of excessive rainfall, protect our soil from erosion, protect our roads from potholes and landslides, and deliver water to our water tables? Join Gold Ridge and Sonoma RCDs and partners, like Harmony Farm Supply and Permaculture Artisans, for a tradeshow-style workshop that explains the practices of good stormwater stewardship. You will have access to experts and information on where to get the tools or help you need.

We'll cover a suite of projects that store, slow, spread and sink stormwater, including rainwater catchment, permeable paving, rain gardens, earth works, and more. See the Stormwater Management Guide "Slow it. Spread it. Sink it. Store it!" online!
