Downspout Planter Workshop Recap – May 12, 2022
On Thursday evening, May 12, the Township's EAC held their Downspout Planter Workshop at Fischer’s Park, led by Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy Conservation Coordinator, Beth Myers. Beth guided participants through the steps of planting and installing a downspout planter at their home. The event was $30 and included all necessary supplies and materials. A downspout planter that attaches to your downspout will divert rainwater into the planter and is a great solution to reduce the amount of stormwater on your property.
