WWW: CRC's Rain Garden Brochure
On June 15th, Whole Foods Devon raised $4,250 during a 5% fundraiser for the CRC to support constructing a rain garden in the Paoli Business District this summer. Rain gardens are planted areas designed to soak up rain water, which drains from a roof or other impervious surface. This rain garden will reduce stormwater runoff and nonpoint source pollution at the very headwaters of Crum Creek in Paoli, and will serve as a demonstration garden for homeowners and businesses alike. A big thanks goes out to everyone who came out during this event and Whole Foods Devon!
