NG Receives Grant to Install Rain Gardens

Neumann Goretti has been the recipient of a $55,000 Philadelphia Water Department Grant to install rain gardens on the 10th Street Lawn. What does this mean for us? Our drainage will be more efficient (no more lake Neumann Goretti’s!), and we will have a beautiful rain garden installed (pictured). Construction starts on Wednesday, August 9, and all work will be completed prior to the beginning of the school year! A HUGE thank you to the Class of ’52, who donated the matching funds to make this dream a reality! We will have a dedication ceremony to name the 10th Street Project: Class of ’52 Rain Gardens!
