Rain Garden

The Green Committee, spearheaded by TI member and landscape architect, Carla Ellern, created the rain garden in order to meet three major objectives:
   - prevention of runoff
   - reduction of flooding
   - beautification of the Juniper Street entrance.

The project includes two bioswales, an infiltration planter and permeable paving. The District Department of the Environment supported TI with a special grant given to houses of worship to reduce stormwater runoff. Additional support came from the Anacostia Watershed Society.
