Need ideas for wet spots in your yard? Want to get involved in a one day community volunteer project? Love gardening or birds and butterflies? Curious about what a ‘rain garden’ is?
If you answered yes to any of these questions? We need you!
Doylestown Borough’s Environmental Advisory Council, with the enthusiastic support of Borough Council, is installing a rain garden project demonstrating the benefits of indigenous plantings and the ease, feasibility, and attractiveness of non-structural storm-water management best practices.
The goal of the project is to have active examples of the techniques to demonstrate these low cost, easily installed, minimally invasive, high impact solutions to stormwater issues. This project will also provide support and demonstration areas for Birdtown, a project promoting the use of native plants in home landscaping to improve bird and human habitat, and encourages residents to combat West Nile by removing areas of standing water on their property where mosquitoes breed.
The gardens will be installed at Central Bucks Ambulance, 455 East Street in Doylestown Borough this spring, with the large scale planting day on Saturday, May 16th. If you are interested in helping us plant, please sign up here so we know you are coming and we can make sure to communicate project news to you as we approach the planting day. We look forward to working with you on this community volunteer project!
