Blue Water Baltimore: Rain Garden Installation with St Francis Neighborhood Center

March 9, 2013
10:00am - 3:00pm

St Francis Neighborhood Center
2405 Linden Ave Baltimore, MD

We are very excited to be partnering with St Francis Neighborhood Center in Reservoir Hill on the installation of their new rain garden! A rain garden is designed to capture stormwater from impervious surfaces, such as rooftops and sidewalks, and filter out pollution so that it doesn’t end up in our storm drains and streams. We will be doing the bulk of the excavation on this date, so come prepared to dig–all you need to bring is a strong back and a good attitude! BWB will provide all gloves and tools, but be sure to wear clothes and shoes that can get dirty.

We will be working in two shifts: 10am to 12:30pm and 12:30pm to 3pm. Please RSVP for one or both shifts to Abby Becker at abecker@stfranciscenter.org or 410-669-2612. The rain date is the following Saturday, March 16th.

March 9th will be the first work day of several; stay tuned for additional days for planting and maintaining the rain garden.

St Francis Neighborhood Center strives to give people hope for a better tomorrow by providing them with the tools they need for a better today. SFNC is committed to breaking the cycles of poverty through education, inspiring self-esteem, self-improvement, and strengthening connections to the community.
