Raingarden tour/discussion and work day.
I have recently put in a raingarden, and could use a little help putting in some retaining walls which will hold hugekulture beds. I'm pretty busy this month and I know we have short days, but wanted to guage the interest of coming out to learn about installing the rain garden and helping me set up some hugeculture beds. Baltimore, MD - possibly in Dec or Jan if we have a warm spell.
