Some of the plants from the Illick Hall rain garden were used in the new plan, but only ones that are capable of living in an environment with complete sun exposure. The plants were researched using the United States Department of Agriculture website, which gave information on the pH, growth in sunlight, and water usage of each species. We selected plants that tolerate a pH of 6-7, do well in sunlight, and have a high water usage.
We distributed the brochures throughout Moon Library so that students and professors could read them. Here are some pictures of the brochure, and a student (Gavin Cohen) reading up on rain garden philosophy:
