Rain Garden Kids: Schools to build Earth Day rain gardens

The Leadership Hilton Head-Bluffton Class of 2010 has joined with students at Red Cedar Elementary School in Bluffton and at Sea Pines Montessori Academy on Hilton Head Island to plant rain gardens at each school on April 22, as part of the students' Earth Day observance.

Students in 5th grade teacher Jodi Nason's class will be planting the Red Cedar rain garden. A group of middle school students at Sea Pines Montessori will plant their school's rain garden. Leadership Class members Alan Arseneau and Steve Sugg worked with the schools to bring the gardens to life. Russ Charek of LowCountry Rain Barrel donated a rain barrel that will be used in the Sea Pines Montessori rain garden.

Davis Landscape of Hilton Head is a partner for the Red Cedar rain garden and provided the garden design below:
