Fund For Lake Michigan

Alice’s Garden, the Urban Farm Rainwater Project, and the Stormwater Harvesting Project

  • Grant Recipient: The Table
  • Amount: $32,125
  • Year: 2017
  • Watershed: Milwaukee River
  • Focus Area: Green Infrastructure

Alice’s Garden will work with Milwaukee Water Commons and Reflo Sustainable Water Solutions to design, build, and install a Rainwater Harvesting System. This system would channel rainwater from surfaces near the garden including Brown Street Academy playground and potentially 20th Street, through a bioswale into underground cisterns. Captured water would be treated and available for irrigation of garden plots.
