Alan Ahlstrom of Havenwood LLc 
Speaks to Blackstone Valley Garden Club on
Rainwater Recovery and Reuse.

Alan Ahlstrom, RLA, CH was asked to speak at the Blackstone River Gardens Clubs Monthly Meeting on the Use of Water in the Garden and how gardeners can make the most of the natural resources of rainfall in the garden. The talk focused on the watering needs of different types of gardens from lawns and annuals to vegetable and perennial gardens; how to calculate the garden needs and the amounts available to collect; and how to attractively collect the water from cisterns to rain barrels and Rain Gardens.
