Wrap up Spring Break with Rain Day at the Earthwise Garden in Boundary Bay.
This free, family friendly event is a community celebration of rain, drawing attention to the importance of this beautiful and essential resource.
Rain Day runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 28.
Don your most colourful rain gear and join the Gumboot Parade through the garden at 11 a.m. Then join children's entertainer Jacques Lalonde for our very own community rain dance. Everyone who takes part will have a chance to win a door prize.
Wander over to the event barn to take part in some rainy day crafts and activities while the little ones tune into the Tsawwassen Library's Raindrop Story Circle at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Feeling lucky?
Enter your sleekest slug in the Slug Race at noon and cheer on the contenders in the circle of slime.
At the Farm Store, warm up with hot chocolate and cookies and shop for seasonal greens freshly harvested from the Earthwise Farm. Grown up gardeners can learn about rain gardens through the illustrated talk and walk, Rain Gardening 101, through the Earthwise demonstration garden.
The Rain Day celebration launches Earthwise Society's Rain Harvest Program for 2015. Funded through Eco-Action Canada and Van City, the Rain Harvest Program will help create a more water aware community by raising awareness of how we can all use water more wisely.
