Thomas Edison was resourceful and with a rain water collection system was able to grow thriving gardens along the Caloosahatchee River in the early 1900’s.

Using some of the same conservation techniques, participants will learn about establishing rain gardens and using rain barrels from Edison Ford Horticultural Staff and University of Florida/Lee County Florida Yards and Neighborhood Program.

Cost: Members are FREE; non-members $5. Rain barrels will be available for purchase. Each participant will receive a gift certificate for a  20% discount in the Garden Shoppe.
