Duluth Grill has a $5,000 match. If they raise $15,000.00 and they are up to a little over $11,000.00 they will get another $5,000 for the rain garden. Check out the website.
We have really, really, appreciated your support. As we enter the last few days of the campaign we have some HUGE news for the final push.
1. MN Sea Grant is hosting two rain garden workshops this summer, which will include design, construction, and maintenance. Details here: http://www.seagrant.umn.edu/news/2013/07/24
2. There is also a webpage about rain gardens and other stormwater practices, focusing on how to design them in our area; that website is here: http://www.lakesuperiorstreams.org/stormwater/toolkit/raingarden.html
3. The Duluth Stream Corps, through Community Action Duluth, has funds to help construct a few rain gardens for residents along stream channels their website and contact info is here: http://www.communityactionduluth.org/streamcorps/index.html
With only a few days left on the campaign, this is a timely story that has Duluth interested. If you’d like to talk to Hartel’s/DBJ, the best contact is:
