The First United Methodist Church is working with the Anacostia Watershed Society to improve the stormwater management at their site through stormwater retrofits. This large project includes removing impervious surfaces, such as parts of the parking lot, to make room for tree boxes as well as creating/planting several bayscapes.
A bayscape is a garden that uses native plants that help prevent erosion and absorb and treat stormwater better than traditional gardens. This event will focus on planting native perennials to improve the function of the bayscapes.
