School Rain Garden

  • Location
    Poolesville, Maryland
  • Status

The Problem

Around our school there are low lying areas with little to no plants where runoff collects. This causes erosion, the creation of a breeding ground for misquotes, and is also simply very unattractive. Therefore, the Coalition has decided to plant a rain garden using only native plants in the most affected area to filter/soak up the water.

Our Plan

The rain garden will filter and soak up the runoff water, so this will prevent erosion, misquote breeding, and beautify the grounds. The rain garden will also provide a space for native plants to flourish which will then provide an environment for native insects. We plan to buy native plants using money raised from school and community fundraisers with approval from our school's administration.
