You are invited join us at a very special event in our backyard as we launch a campaign to reduce basement flooding and beach closures by installing over one hundred rain gardens in the 49th Ward.
“ONE HUNDRED RAIN GARDENS AND RAIN BARRELS GALORE” is an initiative sponsored by theCenter for Neighborhood Technology (CNT), the Chicago Conservation Corps, and the 49th Ward Green Corps. Add your property to the list, or adopt a public space. CNT can provide you with technical assistance and perhaps even some materials!
The event takes place Saturday, May 28, 10 a.m., in our backyard at 1431 W. Fargo. See how rain barrels are installed and learn about other water diversion strategies, such as rain gardens and native plants. Members of the Rogers Park Garden Group will be on hand as a local resource!
Rebate forms will be available for up to 50% off on your next local purchase of TREES (up to $100 back),NATIVE PLANTS (up to $60 back), COMPOST BINS (up to $50 back) and RAIN BARRELS (up to $40 back).
Coffee, juice and pastries will be served. Please dress for the weather.
Please join us for the inaugural event of this exciting initiative!
