Backyard Front Yard: Are you rain ready?

rainbarrelThere sure we’re some pretty major puddles in the neighborhood this weekend. Are you rain ready?

One of our Hood Avenue neighbors sent us a link to our city rain barrel program this weekend if folks are interested in learning more. Our yards offer some of the quickest and most affordable opportunities to manage water.

There are a few reference vidoes from the Center for Neighborhood Technology’s Wetrofit Program below (try to say that out loud with a straight face)

Sure everything is about to be a solid block of ice but spring is just around the corner! 😉

Thanks for the neighbor submission Tara.
