Help Plant the Rain Garden April 20

A Short Lesson on Rain Gardens

What is a rain garden anyway?

A rain garden is a shallow garden installed with native plants to soak up excess rain water that would normally flow to local bodies of water.

Why are rain gardens important?

Rain gardens prevent rain and storm water run off from transporting harmful pollutants to important local bodies of water. This is especially important for Baltimore! Help protect our bay; join us for a day of beautification and trash clean up in Reservoir Hill!

The Details
The Power Project, a youth development program of the St. Francis Neighborhood Center, is installing a rain garden on the southwest corner of the center’s property. Please come support our greening effort in Reservoir Hill on Saturday, April 20 from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm!

Volunteers Will:
- Plant 200 plants
- Help residents pick up trash in surrounding area
- Run the day’s activities which may include: setting up, cleaning up, & running games

*Volunteers should wear clothing appropriate for working outdoors including closed-toe shoes. Don’t forget to bring water!*

Come experience food, fun, and community at the St. Francis Neighborhood Center! All volunteers will receive free food compliments of our dedicated partner, Wholefoods Market Harbor East!
