Madison Valley Stormwater Project

An Angeleno giving a talk on landscape solutions for stormwater pollution in Seattle is a case of taking coal to Newcastle, but I did it anyway in an October 2013 address to the Northwest Horticultural Society. It was a revelation when hosts Gregory Graves and Ann LeVasseur of the NHS took me around the greater Seattle area to visit a number of gardens, including four stormwater projects. This Flickr set contains photos of a remarkable green street grid in the Broadview area, the “Growing Vine Street” project downtown, the “Swale on Yale” in the South Lake Union neighborhood and the madly impressive Madison Valley Stormwater Project near the Washington Park Arboretum.
