Last summer, volunteers from Depave and Rose Community Development worked hard to remove a section of concrete from the Beyer Court Apartments parking lot, to make way for a new rain garden.
Now with spring upon us, it’s time for planting. The new rain garden will clean stormwater runoff and add lovely landscaping to the neighborhood. It’ll also function as a mini-habitat for pollinators like bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
The project is funded by the Bureau of Environmental Services’ (BES) Community Watershed Stewardship Program. The program provides grants to innovative projects that help improve Portland’s neighborhoods and communities, as well as watershed health.
Anyone is welcome to help out! Rose Community Development will provide gardening tools.
