Rain Rain Come Our Way: Building a Swale Workshop
Sunday, July 10
9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (come and go)
Includes an hour lunch break from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. (lunch not provided)
Location: The Prairie Habitat Garden is located along the west side of the University of Saskatchewan’s College of Education building. Closest intersection is Diefenbaker Ct. and Campus Drive.
At this workshop, participants will complete the last phases of the swale installation (but will be able to see the early phases) at the PHG. The swale will capture and guide rain water naturally through the garden, as well as provide children with a rock pathway for exploring the garden.
Participants are asked to wear long sleeves and long pants (for sun and mosquito protection), closed toe shoes, gloves, hat, and sunscreen, as well as bring their own water, snacks, and lunch. If possible, please bring a shovel and wheelbarrow as well.
Please note that this workshop will require lifting and moving rocks and gravel.
