Parking lot rain garden provides for, protects and enhances local Michigan neighborhood

Duluth Grill in Duluth, Michigan is planning to build an orchard/rain garden in the middle of its parking lot. The orchard/rain garden will provide food for the restaurant’s kitchen, enhance the neighborhood and protect nearby lakes and rivers by preventing trash and pollutants from ending up in the lake.

What sparks our fire: We love this example of a local restaurant providing more than just food to enhance its surrounding community.

What is your favorite example of local sustainability?
