    Learn about Small storm water management, erosion control and the medicinal traditional healing plants we selected for the rain garden and their uses.

    Connect students with real world issues that they can do something about.... internationally having clean fresh water is not easy to come by... we need to show them how to manage our water resources better. 


    Contact us to schedule site visit and overview, discuss objectives and expectations, plan for use of our tools and supplies for your work days.


    As with any project we must ensure there is proper adult supervision, either by the teacher or sufficient support from parents and our organization volunteers.
