The voluntary incentive program, RainWise, is up and running in Highland Park! RainWise provides up to 100% of the cost of a cistern or rain garden for eligible residents. To learn more about the program and find out if you’re eligible, visit www.rainwise.seattle.gov.
The Gathering of Neighbors event at Chief Sealth International High School on May 4 will feature RainWise contractors. This is an excellent opportunity to talk with trained rain garden and cistern installers, look at designs, and get ideas for what you can do on your property.
Also, there will be an event at HPIC on Saturday, June 1st from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. that will feature both RainWise contractors and a walking tour of sustainable yards in the neighborhood and other resources. There will be a poster with more info coming out shortly.
