Honey Horn rain garden thriving

The photo at left shows the rain garden at Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn Plantation prior to planting in March 2010. The photo at right shows the rain garden as of August 2010. The PSD sponsored the rain garden, which was planted by the Leadership Hilton Head-Bluffton Class of 2010 along with a variety of partners, as a living example of irrigation efficiency. The 80-gallon rain barrel seen at right in both photos collects rainfall from the roof of the Supervisor's House and uses it to irrigate the garden. Low Country Rain Barrel of Bluffton donated the barrel to the garden.
