The rain garden

The rain garden has been planted!


The following native plants are now in the garden:

Joe Pye weed, Blue Lobelia, Dense Blazing star, Black eyed Susan, Turtlehead, Common Milkweed, Swamp Milkweed and last but not least Canada Wild Rye.


Thanks to Melana, Sam, Christine and The Botany Club members for planning and planting.

The Botany Club  generously donated their lemonade sale money to the FoRRP rain garden.

Summer is here and we have more space in The Botany Club for a few more school-aged children who are available to help water the garden on occasion. The club will learn more about the native plants and help maintain the garden. If your child is interested please contact us at
