Green-It-Yourself Workshop: Landscaping for the Rainy Season

Design & Interactive, Green, Home & Garden, Louisiana, Weather & Hurricanes

March 4th, 2011

Did you
know that New Orleans is the third rainiest city in the
averaging 64” of rain per year, more than Seattle? Stop worrying about
spring street flooding and soggy spots in your yard, and come learn how to live
with our rain. Demetria Christo of EcoUrban LLC will be on hand to talk about managing water in your yard through easy measures like rain barrels,
rain gardens, and permeable landscaping. The workshop will include a tour of Global Green’s LEED Platinum Holy Cross Project, where you can see these techniques in action.

Saturday, March 16
11:00am to 1:00pm
Global Green Holy Cross Project
