Cuthbertson’s waiting for rain

WAXHAW – Students at Cuthbertson Middle School have been hard at work creating rain gardens at campus to help keep local groundwater clean.

The gardens help filter pollutants out of the water before it sinks back into the water table. The students have been studying the hydrosphere and learning about the global freshwater crisis and water pollution.

A grant from Union Power Cooperative, and Young’s Garden Center’s donation of plants, soil and expertise, paid for the project.
