Summer Workshop: Parade of Curb-Cut Raingardens

A Walking Tour of an Shifting Paradigm


Join us on June 8th for a short review of the year, and introductions of Swale Keepers and Green Teams, followed by a pizza dinner ($5 dollar suggested donation). Then we will embark on a parade tour of exciting future gardens in the Alger Heights Neighborhood and the Christian Reformed Church Denominational Building. These sites offer promise of slowing down the storm water, allowing it time to be filtered and absorbed by native plants. Tuesday morning will dawn with an opportunity to join in the implimentation of this restoring work. You are welcome for parts or all of the workshop.
