St. Peter School

St Peter School was one of 7 Capitol Hill schools selected in the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s grant, A Capitol Idea: Greener Schools, Cleaner Rivers grant.  Focusing on reducing and capturing, rainwater on-site, dc greenworks implemented 4 bioretention planters, 3 rain barrels, a 50 square foot green roof, and a 250 square foot interactive rain garden.  The rain garden was integrated with the existing storm drain, and features 4 native river birches and a variety of native grasses.  The green roof was installed on a buttressed wall visible for the students to interact with.

Designed by Sustainable Life Designs, and installed, managed, and ,maintained by dc greenworks.
