Project: Children's Friend Rain Garden

Location: Providence Map It


The 100 square foot "Friendship Garden" rain garden, filled with native Rhode Island plants, was installed by Groundwork's GroundCorp with a walking path and benches to create a new green space for preschool teachers to bring their kids out to learn about nature. Built in 2017, GroundCorp collaborated with students in our job training program and a cohort from Children's Friend's dads job training program. TNC's LEAF crew, visiting youth from New York City, helping with the planting. Children's Friend paid for all project materials.
