New Rain Garden Build - Saturday May 3, 2014

Thanks to Garrison Herries (Eagle Scout Project) and the Eagle Scouts who came out and built a rain garden @ the Stormwater Demonstration Site @ the Boone County/ Columbia Health Department Community Garden.

They built this rain garden in 8 hours, with two shifts of eagle scouts, was an amazing day of hard work. Second volunteer built rain garden this spring! Thanks Volunteers!

Also special thanks to Sam Thomas (PW Street Department) and his staff who supported this project! Thanks Melissa, Izzy and staff for the help! John Persing, PW engineering, who assist Garrison in the rain garden design and plant selection.
