Before and After

So that you can see the full effect of the May "Slow It, Spread It, Sink It" Storm Water Workshops and project in the All Shades parking lot, we thought we'd bring you some of the before and during shots for contrast.

What a difference some know-how, shovels, dedicated people, fruit trees, and native shrubs will make for beautification, community engagement, fun, and--the main attraction--capturing and filtering rain water runoff.  We're super thankful and enjoying the payoff of hard work by those involved!

Parking lot before shots.

The process.
Results: a beautiful new rain barrel.
Results: fruit trees (loquat here), native shrubs, and pineapple sage--yum!
