This EPA Webinar will be of interest to our members:
“Connecting Wellness & Environmental Health: Rain Gardens & Other Sustainable Landscaping Practices for Stormwater Management”
1/12/12, 12-2 EST
Hospitals have a unique opportunity to connect patients and staff to nature through healing gardens. Learn how hospitals are designing their gardens to also manage stormwater. This webinar will give an overview of sustainable landscaping practices with a focus on rain gardens. Speakers will share their experiences of two New England hospital’s work in this area. Participants will learn how connecting wellness and environmental health can also help to satisfy other goals including stormwater compliance, LEED, aesthetics and community relations.
It’s exciting that the EPA has organized this webinar; I’ve registered and am looking forward to it.
