Free class! City rain gardens with their native plants beautify your lawn while also capturing and cleaning stormwater before it enters our rivers and lakes. What’s more, the City of Northfield and Dakota County SWCD will reimburse homeowners for part of the cost of installing a rain garden.
Join Cannon River Watershed Partnership (CRWP) and City of Northfield staff to learn about the benefits of rain gardens, and how to plan and install your own rain garden. You’ll learn where to put a rain garden, how to choose the right plants, and what city and county cost-share programs exist to help you pay for the rain garden.
As of press time, this is an in-person class where participants will wear masks and physically distance. If the Northfield School District decides that in-person events are no longer safe, we will shift this to an online Zoom class. This class is sponsored by the City of Northfield.
Bring to Class:
Enter the high school at door 39, just to the right of the front main entrance. Please wear a mask, bring digital or print photos of your property (to help with rain garden planning) and bring paper and pencils for note-taking.
