Why modular raingardens?

Modular raingardens are a strategic water quality management tool for our streetscapes. They appropriate parklet principles to create a quick and distributed network of above ground raingarden sponges. Modular raingardens improve the social and ecological health of our communities by increasing public space, expanding upstream urban pollinator habitat and protecting downstream water quality for salmon. Modular raingardens are an intermediary strategy for cities addressing stormwater basin goals, until funding/political will/etc is able to put permanent in-ground bioretention systems. raingarden_parklets_why
