Instant Rain Garden

Learn the basic elements of rain garden installation and maintenance, a list of native perennials for wet and dry conditions, and designs that are aesthetically pleasing and highly functional.

Take home five hardy, resilient native plants to start your own rain garden.

This program takes place in person at Mt. Cuba Center on Saturday, June 10, 2023.

About the Instructor: Jay is a Mt. Cuba Center educator. Before coming to Mt Cuba, he spent twenty years as a college instructor, and working with his wife at her family business, Hill House Herb Gardens in Providence, RI. In addition to being the luckiest boy in the world to spend his days with guests marveling at Mt Cuba’s gardens, he shares his enthusiasm for native plants outside Mt Cuba’s gates as the co-horticulturist and Rancocas chapter leader for the Native Plant Society of NJ, and as a native plant garden designer and landscaper.
