Green Light recently had the pleasure of partnering with Fidelity Bank to install two rain barrels in the Gentilly neighborhood! Four Fidelity employees joined our team in an afternoon of installations.
It was a beautiful, clear day that lent itself to laughter, learning, and community connections. Fidelity employees got the opportunity to learn more about the program and it’s recipients by directly participating in the installation process.
Our first barrel recipient Paul intends to use his rain barrel to water the garden he is building in his backyard space. Our second barrel recipients, Johnathan and Catherine want to incorporate their barrel into the rain garden they are constructing on the side of their house to help deal with localized flooding on their property.
It was a truly beneficial experience for all parties involved and we are looking forward to the continued involvement of community partners in the implementation of our programs!
