I know I’ve just been posting my latest published pieces, but I’ve been busy (hence all the published pieces). I’m afraid this post is no different. My piece on rain gardens for City Living was published today.
Here’s a taste:
Three Seattle organizations are teaming up to teach residents how to beautify their homes while keeping the local environment healthy.
In an effort to reduce pollution in the Puget Sound water system, Sustainable Seattle, Creatives4Community (C4C) and Alleycat Acres are teaching homeowners and renters how to construct rain gardens, thus creating natural water-filtration systems in their own back — or front — yards.
“Rain gardens are attractive and functional and can significantly slow down the effects of our urbanization on the watershed,” said Nathan Jackson, the communications and outreach coordinator for Sustainable Seattle.
