Sewage and urban runoff are polluting Detroit’s rivers. Detroit residents and civic leaders can prevent this pollution by putting Rain Gardens to the Rescue! The Rain Gardens to the Rescue program is a series of workshops designed to teach people about rain gardens and how to create rain gardens of their own. Support will be provided to install 20 rain gardens in Districts 5 and 6 in 2017. As volunteers become more aware and engaged in the program our hope is that they will become rain garden ambassadors in the community - teaching others about rain gardens, assisting with rain garden plantings and spreading the message about the importance and need for rain gardens in the community.
Detroit residents in Districts 5 & 6 (Southwest Detroit) are invited to submit an application for the Rain Gardens to the Rescue Program. This year you have two options to submit the application.
