Turn Water into a Gardening Asset

March 22, 2018

The Oregon Coast receives an average of 70 inches of rainfall per year with the majority of the precipitation occurring during the winter months. The coastal ecosystem has adapted to these wet winters and dry summers by absorbing and storing the water in the wet season and providing it in the dry season. This relationship has been altered by the addition of impervious surfaces; resulting in excess surface runoff, frequent flooding, and system overflows. Fortunately, there are ways to address these stormwater challengers while also providing solutions for the dry season. 

 

In this workshop you will learn:

  • The challenges and benefits of rainwater

  • Design principles to increase infiltration and storage

  • Do-it-yourself project ideas for rainwater harvesting and rain gardens
