Education and Outreach About GI Maintenance, Rain Gardens, and Yard Care

Achieving a lush, green lawn is an understandable gardening goal. Unfortunately, gardening practices used to achieve that goal often contribute to stormwater pollution, especially overuse of lawn chemicals and excessive watering. If you want residents in your town to practice more stormwater-friendly lawn and garden care, then we have a strategy for you! We can help you:

  • Publicize yearly reminders to encourage stormwater-friendly yard care in any season,

  • Hold a rain barrel sale,

  • Create and maintain a demonstration rain garden, or

  • Educate local residents with a presentation by URI Master Gardeners.
