RainWise ProgramAs trained Rain Wise contractors and cistern brokers, we have been with this program since day one. Cascadia Edible Landscapes is certified to install rain barrels and large water catchments, in-ground and off-pipe efficient drip irrigation systems. 

King County offers a wealth of information on Rain Gardens as well as an incentive of receiving a rebate for utilizing our service for installation of a rain garden or cistern.  For more information on the RainWise details please visit their website.
