Ten PLNA members participated in a Penn State University project at the Philadelphia Navy Yard in the Fall of 2013 to design and install a landscape component of the larger project incorporating sustainable landscape techniques, plants and products.  This GridSTAR project offers many opportunities to showcase stormwater BMPs through rain gardens and bio-infiltration, rain barrels, downspout direction and capture, downspout planter box, rainwater reuse, pervious / porous paving systems, native plants and alternative lawn meadows.

A combined panel discussion and site tour is being offered at PANTS14 on July 30.  Many of the participating members will be on hand to offer their insight on the project and how they implement their products and services into sustainable landscapes.

The participating PLNA members are:

Octoraro Native Plant Nursery, All Season’s Landscaping, Aquarius Supply, Cedar Run Landscapes, EP Henry, Ernst Conservation Seeds, Feeney’s Wholesale Nursery, Frey Brothers/Twin Oaks Mulch, North Creek Nurseries and The Organic Mechanic Soil Company

KUDOS to these members for the time and materials they supplied to this educational project.

For more information about the project or the combined panel discussion and site tour visit the PANTS webiste http://www.pantshow.com/page/green-infrastructure-tour
