Growing Green To Save Green
Money doesn't grow on trees, but when it comes to improving water quality growing a little green helps save a lot it.
A federal grant used by Alachua County's Environmental Protection Department has students getting their hands dirty to clean up the environment.
At Kanapaha Middle School, group of unlikely water conservationist planted seeds of change their very own rain garden.
The process started last semester when students learned about a way to collect fallen rain and use it to water native plants that can help protect the environment.
The project helps the community and gets students excited about learning.
Rain gardens will also be installed at Glen Springs and Williams Elementary Schools in Alachua County.
