We thought we would share some good news happening in our stormwater programs here in SE Como- Mississippi Watershed Management Organization awarded SECIA a Planning Grant from their Stewardship Fund for Como Corner! The $8,000 project covers planning and designing a Rain water Catchment Structure for Como Corner Community Garden.
This is a chance for this garden to dream big after having a number of setbacks and disappointments that resulted from bridge reconstruction in recent years. Look for opportunities to comment on design ideas. Roughly, we hope for an multifunction above ground structure that collects and stores rainwater. Something artful but tough, somewhere to sit, some grow boxes, and irrigation for the rest of the community garden are all elements on the drawing board.
