Rain Garden Project

WELCOME TO OUR RAIN GARDEN PROJECT WEBPAGE!

During our pilot project in 2010-2011, which was funded through an EPA environmental education grant, we installed rain garden exhibits in three local schools, Kanapaha Middle, Williams and Glen Springs Elementary.  The project was a great success with over 231 students participating.

Through funds from the Gainesville Clean Water Partnership, we plan to build a new garden each year.  In 2012, a rain garden was constructed at Norton Elementary School, in 2013 at Chiles Elementary, and in 2014 at Lake Forest elementary.  If your school would like to participate, contact Emily Rodriquez.
