As part of our initiative with Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT) to install 100 rain gardens in Rogers Park, we are moving forward on planting one right in the backyard of our Koinonia Eco Home. Last week, the rain garden project crew met up with CNT Senior Engineer Bill Eyring and his daughter to investigate further. We determined the back corner of the yard to be the best fit for a garden based on the location of the rain spouts.
CNT has graciously donated over 70 plants for us to use to create our rain garden. Hopefully, we will have more pictures and updates to share soon!
