Have you seen the new rain gardens around town? Through the Ready for Rain Peterborough program organized by Peterborough GreenUP, gardens that are designed to soak up and retain heavy rainfall are being planted in residential neighbourhoods and downtown boulevards. With a changing climate and projections for increased rainfall in southern Ontario, it is expected that there will be an increase in flood events. By planting the gardens in areas where many people will see them, they provide learning opportunities for others considering similar landscaping changes. PFN juniors families are invited to help plant a rain garden together on October 1st.

If you can volunteer for an hour (or any amount of time), please book a space below so that we have a sense of numbers and can contact you if any details change. Full details will be provided to volunteers via email.

Location: corner of Penrose Avenue and Bolivar Avenue

Thanks to all program partners: Peterborough GreenUP, Green Communities Canada, City of Peterborough, citizens of Peterborough, and Ontario Trillium Foundation
