Judson Rain Garden Tour
September 17, 2017 @ 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Do you know the purpose of a rain garden? Would you like to know why Judson Church chose to put in three rain gardens? Would you like to see what they look like and how they work? Come for a tour and information!
Our process started nearly a year ago. We applied for and received a mini grant from the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization. We proposed installing three rain gardens that would capture runoff rain from our roofs and filter it before it flowed into the street and directly to the Mississippi River. Volunteers from the church provided the labor to dig the gardens, plant the native plants and spread the mulch. The grant was used primarily to pay for the plants, the mulch and some educational material for the children. During the upcoming school year our preschool and Sunday School children will learn how these rain gardens work, why they are important and why we use native plants. If you join us on September 17th, you will learn all of this too!
