The sale is brought to you by the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District in partnership with Agrecol Native Seed and Plant Nursery.

Why Rain Gardens?

Rain gardens reduce water pollution and improve our rivers and Lake Michigan. Rain gardens collect rain and melting snow, naturally absorbing them into the ground. By managing the rainwater where it falls,  rain gardens reduce storm water runoff that can transport many pollutants to our local waterways. Most people direct downspouts from rooftops into their rain gardens. However, you can also use them to absorb water from hillsides, driveways, and other hard surfaces. 

Another great way to reduce water pollution and runoff is to use a rain barrel, which can then provide fresh water to the rest of your garden.  

MMSD is excited to sponsor the Annual Rain Garden Plant sale. Installing a rain garden is an excellent, cost-effective way of doing your part to help protect Lake Michigan!
