Mid­shore River­keep­ers seek vol­un­teers for rain gar­den plant­ing

CON­TRIB­UTED PHOTO

Mid­shore River­keeper Con­ser­vancy will join Waugh Chapel con­gre­ga­tion mem­bers and com­mu­nity vol­un­teers to in­stall a rain gar­den behind Waugh Chapel United Methodist Church in Cam­bridge from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Satur­day, June 18. A rain gar­den is a planted area slightly de­pressed into the ground to col­lect stormwa­ter runoff. Rain gar­dens are filled with na­tive plants, such as Black-eyed Su­sans and switch­grass, which help pre­vent soil ero­sion and soak up ex­cess nu­tri­ents, thus re­duc­ing runoff and pol­lu­tion. The rain gar­den at Waugh Chapel will ab­sorb runoff from a por­tion of the roof, avert­ing stormwa­ter from reach­ing the Chop­tank River. This will be one of the first rain gar­dens in the down­town Cam­bridge area, and will com­ple­ment Waugh Chapel’s com­mu­nity gar­den. No gar­den­ing ex­pe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary, and all ages are wel­come to par­tic­i­pate. A light break­fast, lunch and snacks will be provided. For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact El­iz­a­beth Brown at Mid­shore River­keeper Con­ser­vancy at 443-385-0511 or el­iz­a­beth@mid­shoreriver­keeper.org.
