This informative webinar entitled “Rain Gardens to Rain Barrels” was intended to support the Florida Master Gardener and Florida Master Naturalist continuing education program. It originally aired on March 26, 2020. Participants learned about uses and assembly of rain barrels. They also learned how rain gardens and rain barrels could help conserve water in the landscape. Be sure to follow all landscaping ordinances in your community. This program was brought to you by the UF/IFAS Extension St. Lucie County and the UF/IFAS Indian River Research and Education Center. It was hosted by Dr. Sandra Guzman and presented by Extension Agents Ken Gioeli and Kate Rotindo.
