In partnership with Green Apple Day of Service with our friends at the US Green Building Council West Michigan Chapter, we are planting a beautiful rain garden at Burton Middle and Elementary School. We started the beautification of this historic school building last fall with tree plantings. The garden will be planted by the students, but we need your help to prepare the site to ease the planting process for the kids!
This garden will include porous pavement walkway, benches, pollinator plants, and stormwater management tactics to help with erosion and water pollution.
When? Saturday, May 21st 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Where? Burton Elementary and Middle School, 2133 Buchanan Ave SW, Grand Rapids, MI

Special thanks to all of our partners including Grand Rapids Public Schools, US Green Building Council West Michigan Chapter, FTC&H, Porous Pave, Friends of Grand Rapids Parks, and Fen View Designs, LLC.
