Susan Bryan created and teaches the Master Rain Gardener class at Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner’s Office, which became a state-wide certification in 2015, and has spread to the Great Lakes western states including – gasp! – Canada! And Ohio! Over 1,200 rain gardens have been built by homeowners on her advice – by the industrious and spectacular Master Rain Gardeners.
