Chatham Township and the Great Swamp Watershed Association, along with the Chatham Borough Green Initiatives Committee, offer a pre‐spring rain garden workshop.

A rain garden is not much different from an ordinary garden with flowers, but a rain garden provides extraordinary help in protecting your property from flooding, drought, and stormwater management problems.  In addition, a rain garden helps reduce your water bill and reduces runoff pollution too.  Reducing stormwater pollution helps keep your local streams clean and clear and drinking water cleaner too.

Our easy, soup‐to‐nuts Rain Garden Workshop will take place on Saturday, March 10, from 10:00 a.m. to noon, at GSWA, 568 Tempe Wick Road in Morristown, NJ.  We will teach you all you need to know about installing your own rain garden at home, how to choose the best space for your new environmentally friendly landscape feature, and how to choose the best and easiest‐to‐maintain shrubs and plants. Join us too for a tour that morning of GSWA’s working rain garden--built just outside our workshop classroom.

Just remember to pre‐register online at to reserve your spot.
