Festival of Ridvan

Days of Commemoration Festival of Ridvan - Meaning ("paradise") is a Baha'i celebration commemorating the 12-day period in 1863 that Baha'u'llah (Baha'i founder) spent in the Garden of Ridvan, just outside Bagdad. During this period, Baha'u'llah began his prophethood and became God's messenger for this age. Baha'u'llah was in the Garden of Ridvan from April 21 to May 2, 1863, and this period is considered the most holy festival of the Baha'i faith and is called "Most Great Festival." The Festival of Ridvan is observed according to the Baha'i calendar and begins on April 21 and continues through May 2 each year. Category: Holidays. Monday, April 21, 2014.

RainScapes “Make and Take” Rain Barrel Workshop

Rainscapes Do you want to lessen the amount of tap water you use to water your garden? Do you want to help the environment by slowing down stormwater? If the answer is yes to either of those questions then what you want is a rain barrel! A rain barrel collects and temporarily stores rainwater from your rooftop downspout. Every gallon you capture is one less gallon going down the storm drain and you also end up with a free source of water for watering your garden. At this workshop you will learn the importance of stormwater control and you will gain the knowledge necessary to install your own rain barrel. You will also learn how to apply for a rebate for future rain barrels from Montgomery County’s RainScapes Rewards rebate program. Each attendee will be provided with light refreshments as well as one rain barrel with parts (one per household) to take home with them. Remember to bring a vehicle large enough to carry a 55-gallon (2’ x 3’) barrel home! Fee: $12 for Friends of Brookside Gardens or $15 for non-members Re… Category: Educational Class.

RainScapes Conservation Landscape Workshop

Rainscapes Planning on doing some spring landscaping? Before you do make sure to attend this workshop so you can learn how to turn a simple landscape into an environmentally friendly RainScape! A RainScape is a multi-benefit eco-friendly practice that beautifies your property, helps control stormwater, and can provide habitat to wildlife. This workshop will focus on conservation landscapes which are gardens planted with native plants. The native plants are deep rooted so they help slow down and soak up the rain water. Instead of polluted rain water running off your land and into our streams the conservation landscape gives that water a chance to soak into the ground. Allowing the water to soak into the ground gives it a chance to get filtered by the soil before it reaches the stream. At this workshop you will learn how to evaluate your yard and gain the knowledge needed to create a conservation landscape. You will also learn how to apply for a rebate for your conservation landscape from Montgomery County’s RainScapes Re… Category: Educational Class. Environmental Protection.
