One thought on “About Us

  1. I’m an 8th grade teacher at Benjamin Franklin Middle School in Rocky Mount, VA and a Virginia Master Naturalist as well. We have an environmental study trail here on school grounds that has developed a serious runoff issue thanks to drainage from the parking lot. We’re interested in possibly creating a rain garden/runoff management plan to keep the trail intact AND to keep the parking lot runoff out of the creek that runs through the property. We can find tons of volunteer labor and materials. What we do not have is a plan. Is this something you can help with? Thank you for your time and assistance!
