How School Rain Gardens Can Center Equity and Support Stewardship

How School Rain Gardens Can Center Equity and Support Stewardship

Last week, Urban School Programs Coordinator Celina Steiger co-led a presentation on “Rain Gardens and Schools in Seattle,” in partnership with Seattle Public Utilities’ Rainwise program and the School Learning Garden Network.

 

The presentation explored the purpose of rain gardens, examples of our work to implement rain gardens in schools throughout Seattle (you can learn more about this work here!), and ideas for how teachers and administrators can implement their own rain garden while centering social justice and equity.

 

In Celina’s words, “I’m excited about this work because I get to help teachers and students learn about and design rain gardens and other outdoor learning spaces that will be lasting assets to their school and community.”
