Upcoming rain garden tours

Posted by Meghan Walker on May 29th, 2011

On June 4 and 11, People for Puget Sound will host rain garden tours around Ballard.  June 4 is a bicycle tour starting at 10 a.m. at Bergen Place Park (5420 22nd Ave. NW). June 11 is a walking tour, and will meet at 10 a.m. at the Loyal Heights Elementary playground.

The tours will be an hour and a half long and will visit different residences in Ballard to learn about rain garden designs. Participants will be able to, “speak with residents about the design process, special considerations, and the results of their rain gardens and cisterns,” Robert Hall from People for Puget Sound wrote in an email. He said the tour will feature residents who have participated in Seattle Public Utility’s RainWise program.

Hall said coffee will be available before the tour, and appetizers will be served afterward at Snoose Junction Pizzeria.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  • 28 kegel auto skup aut // Jan 11, 2015 at 5:31 am

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
