We are excited to be underway with our partnership with Landmark Science & Design to plan the creation of our rain garden in the front of George Read Middle School. The partnership generates learning opportunities for our students while solving an otherwise expensive drainage problem. Landmark Science & Design has offered their assistance in the topographical survey, ground seepage testing, and archeological design of a rain garden in order to alleviate a water pooling issue in the front of the school. The current agriculture classes have been, and will continue to be part of the creation of the rain garden. In the spring, agriculture classes will watch the excavation of the garden, have classroom visits by Landmark professionals, and be involved int he planting of native species of plants within the rain garden.
