The Green Infrastructure Coalition led a tour this week showcasing projects designed to trap runoff, the leading cause of water quality problems in the state.
Artist Holly Ewald attended the tour. She’s a part of a group that worked with students at Reservoir Avenue Elementary School in Providence to transform a dirt patch into a rain garden.
“They came up with an idea using clay and cardboard and straws,” said Ewald. “Then if you look at the final structure, you can see a total connection between what the kids’ design and ideas and the final structure that was built.”
