Our Green Blocks Blue Sound project adds a Depave event!

DepaveRain Garden HPIC

Neighbor power! - Who can imagine people volunteering to come out and dig up asphalt? That's what happened at the first ever DePave Day in King County in partnership with Stewardship Partners! Now that asphalt parking lot is a beautiful community courtyard complete with permeable pavers, rain gardens, native plantings and more. Learn more about the project here. We also have ongoing projects where we bring community together to plant rain gardens like the beautiful one above so volunteer with us this summer!

On April 21, we kicked off a pilot project at The Port of Seattle to reduce the amount of polluted runoff reaching Puget Sound.  The Port is hosting a two-year study site for two Splash Boxxes, unique metal boxes which will bloom into rain gardens and help reduce pollutants.  This project is led by Gealogical, LLC in partnership with King Conservation District, Sustainable Seattle, and Splash Boxx LLC.   Learn more about the "Rolling Gardens at Port of Seattle" from King 5 News.  And the news spread across the country! Maritime Executive was one of the outlets that shared the writeup. A great blog article about the adventures of getting the project this far can be found on Gealogica's website.
