Are you interested in rain barrels? How about native plants? Join us on May 4 as Kristin Hilson from Franklin Soil and Water will discuss how you can save water in your backyard by using rain barrels, as well as how you can manage the storm water at your own home. We will delve into the importance of rain gardens and why native plants are so important for our most precious resource: water.
