Master Gardener Tom Groppoli (on right) talks with a participant after the rain garden workshop held at Prairie Restorations in Scandia on April 20. To improve the quality of nearby lakes and rivers, homeowners are encouraged to plant wetland edge vegetation in low spots to let storm water soak slowly into the ground. Prairie Restoration specializes in restoring native plant communities and also sells native plants and seeds at its Scandia store.
