LEAP Raingarden

LEAP High School installed a new rain garden in the school’s courtyard to address ongoing drainage issues.  Prior to the rain garden, rain water would sit against the building and flood the gym, slowly ruining the gym flooring.  In collaboration with Ramsey County Water and Soil and SPPS Environmental Services, LEAP High School received a grant to install a rain garden that included the necessary drainage features to prevent further flooding.

In addition, the garden includes an outdoor space where classes can meet and learn about native plants, pollinators, rain gardens, and storm water sustainability.  While the plants are young and small now, they will grow into a beautiful space to be used by the school and enjoyed by the community.
