Rain Garden Passes the Pit Test

on April 28, 2015

Fourth Grade students took some pit tests in our fourth grade courtyard to see whether the site was suitable for a rain garden.  Water was poured to fill a six inch hole.  We made 4 different holes in the garden.   In a few hours, the water sunk into the hole.   This indicated that the spaces in the courtyard are suitable for a rain garden.
