Spread This Idea


St. Thomas Aquinas School Corner of 8th St. & 4th Avenue

My project idea is...

Green Infrastructure improvements. Now, all down spouts go direct to street surface. Playground /park lot is all tarmac. To assess: water harvesting, permeable pavement, bioswales/rain gardens.

So that people could... 

We just created a nomadic sub-irrigated school garden at PS133. It's meant to move with the school to their new location. The new tenants could create a more permanent school garden with modern green infrastructure. The community has been thrilled with the greening of PS133.
