Retain Your Rain Mini Grant

Posted on July 2, 2020 at 10:45 AM by Margaret Epes

Congratulations to our Spring Mini Grant winner, The Little Theatre of Norfolk! They were awarded $2500 to install several Retain Your Rain features including rain barrels, dry wells, and conservation landscaping that includes native trees and perennials. We are tentatively planning a Volunteer Installation Day for this Fall where you can come out to get your hands dirty, engage with the community, and learn about these Retain Your Rain features. More details to follow about the Volunteer Day!
