Rain gardens absorb rainwater and filter pollutants using just soil, stone and plants. We're working with the City of Medford and Horsley Witten Group, an environmental engineering firm, to install one at Wright's Pond in Medford! We need 5-8 volunteers to help us prep and plant this garden on May 28th from 9 am-11 am and May 29th from 9 am-12 pm. More info and sign up here.
