This is a follow up to a story done last week called Rain Gardens @ Lions Park. Here you'll see first had the process involved in planting thousands of wild flowers and grasses into a Rain Garden to provide both the appearance and filtering properties desired. Lois Lieser, representing the City of Cold Spring, along with Greg Berg, with the Soil & Water Conservation District, describe the entire process of preparing for and working with volunteers to facilitate the planting.
This story includes many great shots of people from around the community who helped to plant the Rain Gardens over a two day period. 40-50 persons took part in the planting and did a fantastic job in the 80 degree plus scorching temperatures. There were smiles on everyone's faces and the word fun could be heard floating through the group throughout the day.
