Edgewood students and neighborhood residents worked together to create a rain garden in front of a Russett Road apartment building on Saturday, April 24, 2010. The front yards of seven buildings were planted with food crops and flowers as part of a neighborhood improvement project on Madison's West Side. The rain garden was one part of a project coordinated by Patricia Egan's HS 303 class.
