Homestead Elementary School Rain Garden 

Several years ago, Mr. Bohlman's 5th grade class at Homestead Elementary School reached out to Harford County about their concerns for how runoff on the school property was causing erosion along the basketball court and contribing sediment into their local stream.

The 5th grade class presented their ideas to the County and helped to not only develop a solution to the erosion but also a way to treat the stormwater on their school campus.

Planting

In spring 2019, each 4th and 5th grade student helped plant the following native perennial plants in the rain garden.
