Come hear Cindy Maravich speak on “Rain Gardens: the Who, What, Where (and a little bit of the How)”.

Join us as we hear about the new Master Rain Gardener Program commencing in central Ohio in the summer of 2022. We’ll discuss the history and goals of rain gardens, the new rain garden installation at Inniswood, and learn about how you can become a certified Master Rain Gardener.

Cindy is in her 14th year as the senior environmental educator at Inniswood Metro Gardens. Throughout her tenure, she has overseen the entire education program at the Gardens including special events, school, adult, and family programs. She has
presented on topics ranging from plant identification, pollinators, container gardening, and a wide range of wildlife topics  including birds, mammals, and insects. Prior to her current work, she managed academic greenhouses, and worked as a horticulturist at another central Ohio public garden. She holds degrees in horticulture and education.
She credits her love of plants and the outdoors to her childhood upbringing on a northwest Ohio swine and large-scale grain farm which she visits frequently with her husband and two sons.



We also welcome guest speaker TJ Nagel who will take the audience on “An afternoon walk with lots of Tree Talk”.  This will be a Tree Walk through the gardens, so appropriate walking shoes are encouraged and please dress for the weather.

TJ loves trees. He is an avid gardener, plant collector and well versed in
plant health care. He graduated from The Ohio State University with a B.S.
in agriculture, major in landscape horticulture and minor in entomology.
He loves to learn and share tree talk with anyone who wants to do the
same. He is currently the scheduling production manager with Russell Tree
Experts. You can read his contributing articles on Russelltreeexperts.com.
