Gardening For Clean Water

Gardening for Clean Water
provides local nurseries with rain garden education and tools for staff and customers to promote rain gardening and clean water.

The program was initially grant-funded in 2012, and awarded $47,056 from Ohio EPA’s Environmental Education Fund. Its funding period and activities took place in June 2012 through November 2014. Primary objectives included recruitment of nurseries, creation of training materials for garden centers, outreach, and ongoing support. In 2016, the Ohio EPA Office of Environmental Education selected Gardening for Clean Water as an Outstanding Project.

The program currently involves optional education for nursery employees about stormwater pollution, an onsite store display, and rain garden plant tags. About 10 local nurseries are visited several times a year where nearly 50 perennials and woody shrubs are marked with species name and a “Suitable for Rain Gardens” placard. This program receives support from following cities and municipal communities: Bexley, Canal Winchester, Columbus, Dublin, Franklin County, Hilliard, New Albany, and Westerville.
