Amanda Rockler:
Greening your Garden


The Beltsville Garden Club will hold its May general meeting on Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. in the Multipurpose room of the James E. Duckworth School at 11201 Evans Trail in Beltsville, Maryland.

Have you wanted to create a small-scale storm-water installation, but thought it was too expensive? Did you know that you can receive incentives from the County for installing small-scale best management practices?

The May BGC meeting will cover small-scale stormwater best management practices from concept to installation. It also will cover the Montgomery County Rainscapes and the Prince George's County Rain Check programs that are available to fund the small-scale stormwater project of your dreams.
