On Saturday, June 17th, at 10:00 a.m., Master Gardeners Iris Burke and Bob Winters will provide an informative talk about the construction of rain gardens for your home. With PowerPoint slides and demonstrations, they will suggest suitable plants and locations in typical environments. Information will be given on how to apply for a James City County grant which can cover the cost of planting your rain garden. This presentation is part of the Learn and Grow Educational Series sponsored by the Williamsburg Botanical Garden. It is being held at Freedom Park Interpretive Center in Williamsburg and is open to the public. The program is free, although a $5.00 donation to help the Garden grow is appreciated. For more information, please contact Bob Winters by email at
After the program, Master Gardeners will be in the Garden to answer questions and talk about what is in bloom.
