Recyle the Rain at Home Workshops to Help Homeowners Plan Eco-Conscious Landscapes

May 02, 2011



For Immediate Release         

(TORONTO, May 2, 2011) 

It's raining, it's pouring, now what are you going to do with all that rain? The Recycle the Rain workshop series by the Healthy Yards group at Toronto and Region Conservation, will introduce homeowners to the basics of landscape enhancement and design aimed at utilizing rain water.  The Recycle the Rain at Home Workshops Series is being held at the Caledon Community Centre. Re-using rain water is not only good for the environment but also great for reducing water bills!

The first half day workshop (May 7th) will introduce homeowners to the basics of rain gardens, rain barrels and other rain water harvesting and recycling tools.

At the second half day workshop (May 28th) attendees will get to work one-on-one with a landscape designer to build a personalized water-loving landscape design that incorporates water harvesting and recycling technologies onto their property.


Both workshop sessions include a light brunch.
