Blue Island is just one of the areas working to incorporate green infrastructure, improving neighborhoods and helping the environment. This Saturday, October 6, they’ll be holding a workshop and demonstration for residents that will show how to install rain barrels and plant a native plant garden. 
“Neighborhood residents, business owners, and anyone else interested are welcome to attend events throughout the neighborhood as part of this project. Experts will be on hand to show how rain barrels work, provide tips on planting successful native plant gardens, and answer questions.”
Residents can also get free rain barrels for their homes by contacting the office listed on the flyer.
