Project DescriptionGesu's Rain Garden is part of the Rain Garden's to the Rescue GSI program funded by the Erb Family Foundation. Green Infrastructure involves using nature-based practices like bioswales and rain garden's to soak up storm water that comes off impervious surfaces like roofs and driveways helping to prevent combined sewer overflows. This, in turn, helps protect the water quality of our lakes and rivers! The garden's with their beautiful native plants and flowers are a joy to look at as well.!
