Installation Day!!

Dec 3 2011

A Surfrider Foundation sponsored Ocean Friendly Garden has been installed in Seattle!  On a brisk Saturday morning, over 15 volunteers showed up to help install the rain garden in North Seattle.  The preliminary work of  ‘plumbing’ the garden’ had been taken care of in the past few weeks, allowing for the volunteers to focus on the more arduous task of digging, grading, laying the rock, planting, and mulching.  After a little bit of effort- and fun conversations!- the garden and sunken patio was complete.  Now all we need is a good rain storm to help flush it out and to allow for some inevitable fine tuning to maximize performance.

Thanks to all volunteers and the Surfrider Foundation for their support.
