Here downloadable from this link is a whole how-to about rain garden design and construction. Nothing is more important in terms of a permaculture renewal, resilience, and sustainability in the Rain City.

Stephanie St. Loe - I agree that we should be doing more Rain Gardens. Here are two links. Also join the False Creek Watershed FB page and St George's Blueway and these things sometimes get discussed. Hope that helps.

Cheers
