Adams Elem. rain garden to be featured on King5

Posted by Geeky Swedes on April 28th, 2010

Adams Elementary is about to unveil their new rain garden, but before the dedication ceremony on Friday they’ll be talking about the project on King-TV’s new show “New Day Northwest.”

Construction of the rain garden, fall 2009

“This project demonstrates how successful neighborhood schools can be,” Alison Krupnick tells us in an email. “This project, and those that preceded it (playground, reader board), were the result of a group of parents having ‘dreams’ for their kids’ school and the perseverance to make those dreams come true.” Krupnick helped coordinate the project, while Guy Michaelsen and David Minnery were the landscape architects who designed the rain garden. All three will be guests on the show Thursday morning and the school will be well-represented in the studio audience. Rachel Hart tells us that nearly two dozen kids, ages 6 to 11 will be on hand. “Several of the now third-graders helped David Minnery with the initial rain garden design when they were in first grade,” Hart says.

New Day Northwest airs on King5 from 11 a.m. to noon. If you’d like to be part of the audience, email The tickets are free. Audience members need to arrive about 9:15 and will be finished at 11:30.
