April Showers: Slow it. Spread it. Sink it.
Please join us for a workshop sharing practical and eco-friendly landscape designs that protect your property and the environment from the harmful effects of Stormwater Runoff. Workshop topics include:
- Understanding unintended consequences of stormwater runoff
- Creative best practices and design how-to’s rain gardens, cisterns, dry creek beds, and other passive rainwater designs
- Local community highlights (we have several creative examples we can highlight in this workshop. I can include images and possibly videos here;)
Merideth Finney Garrigan is an experienced entrepreneur and creator of two successful Lowcountry businesses in the creative fields of photography and permaculture design. Both businesses have focused on the power and joy of connection ~ in families and in our environment~ and in the creative force of vision and design.
Passionate about building meaningful partnerships and connecting people in a shared mission. Lifetime focus on endeavors that bridge multiple efforts of land and water repair and restoration, and of shared community values of health and equity.
Wecology Gardens is our way to facilitate practical changes on a local level through regenerative landscaping and permaculture-based design for families in our community. Our designs will harvest rainwater, grow flowers that attract pollinators, feed dwindling bird species, and produce a bounty of herbs and vegetables while also connecting children with the cycles of life and our community with a circular economy.
Enlightened Soil Corp is an exciting opportunity to continue to put my heart into the work of repair and restoration of our soils, increasing the nutrition value of our food, protecting sacred waters from harmful and destructive runoff, and ensuring the health of our communities for generations to come.
Cost is $15 members/$20 nonmembers. Registrants will receive a link to Zoom the morning of this workshop. For a Zoom primer click HERE.
