A Rain Garden is a wonderful way to protect Puget Sound from toxins in our collective storm water runoff from roads and roofs. Using native and drought tolerant plants, rain gardens retain and filter storm water runoff. Rain gardens are a beautiful and sustainable feature for your yard and can be the perfect habitat for edibles like blueberries, huckleberries, elder berries, and more. Learn how to create an appropriate feature for your yard. The possibility exists for some planting of edible plants in an actual rain garden setting. Dress appropriately for the weather conditions.
