Residential Rain Garden Certification for professionals and homeowners

As part of its WaterRICH (Water Reuse, Infiltration, and Conservation for the Home) Program,  RiverLink is partnering with the NC Cooperative Extension to offer a rain garden class focusing on use in residential applications.  
They are offering the course to professionals for certification OR to residents not for certification (at a reduced rate). 

October 22-23, 2012

Buncombe County Extension Center
94 Coxe Avenue
Asheville, NC 28801

The first day will be at the Buncombe County Extension Center and the second day will be at RiverLink's offices at 170 Lyman Street.  

This program helps residents design and construct their own rainwater gardens, cisterns and rain barrels to promote infiltration and reuse of rainwater on landscapes, reducing run-off and your water bill!  RiverLink is working to expand the WaterRICH program, through additional assistance.  As part of this they are requiring their "recommended designers" have this certification, as they are looking to rely more heavily on them all as the program moves forward.
