Drawing from ideas generated by Binford Middle School students, this rainwater harvesting system was designed to divert runoff from the roof of the school to a bed of native plants, which act to filter pollutants from the water on its way to the James River. Consistent with Binford’s mission of inspiring a love of learning through the arts, the system demonstrates the power of integrating art and science to enact change in your community.
