Rainscaping at the Coolidge High School Garden

What: Rainscaping at Coolidge Highschool Garden
When: Saturday, November 12 , 8:30 am to noon
Where: Calvin Coolidge Garden 6315 5th St NW, Washington DC

Please join the Friends of the Garden and Coolidge High School students in restoring 3600 sq ft of beds after last summer's drought. Gardening experts from the area's Watershed Stewards Academy and the American Society of Landscape Architects will explain how and why rainscaping (also known as riverscaping) helps local waterways and the Chesapeake Bay stay healthy, while making neighborhoods more attractive. The Native Species you will plant are drought resistant and hardy, and will attract birds and desirable insects like butter´Čéies for years to come.

Tools and Gloves: Provided but bring along your favorite weeding tool if you have one. 
Coffee, tea, juice and snacks provided.
RSVP by Wednesday, November 9 to James Proctor at jproctor@cchs-aa.org or 202-652-9423
