Rain Barrels on Belle Isle, GoLightly

Recently I got the opportunity to install 11 rain barrels on Belle Isle. This unique opportunity to get involved with the Detroit Public Schools, GoLightly AgriScience techinacal / vocational center and their gardening program. Located in the middle of the Isle, GoLightly is a single classroom with multiple greenhouses attached. You can find it across from the Belle Isle Aquarium. They even have an aquaponics setup!

At the end of June I joined them for their annual plant exchange and discussed Rain Water Harvesting, Rain Barrels and more! Later, I followed up to finish the install.

Overall 11 rain barrels in 5 locations on the GoLightly premises. They will save over 525 gallons of water every decent rain shower!
