Rain Garden Unveiling
September 25 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm MDT
September is Yard to Table Month:
A celebration of urban and rural sustainable agriculture in the Sioux Empire.
Wow!!! Homegrown members built a Rain Garden!
Come see it and celebrate how we as a community can mitigate pollution impacting our water ways. From sourcing food from local sustainable sources to building rain gardens.
This is a celebration of months of organizing and working in collaboration with SDSU Extension and Engineer John McMaine which included design workshops throughout eastern SD and extensive planning.
The Rain Garden site was selected at Homegrown members Kelsie and Tony’s home as a demonstration and data collection site for a small footprint residential bio-infiltration basin.
The project was made possible by funding from the SD Discovery Center in Pierre. The SD Discovery Center manages and awards funds from the EPA Clean Water Act 319 Competitive Grants. These grants are in place to help educate the public on Nonpoint Source Pollution and how we as communities can mitigate these types of pollution impacting our waterways.
