Alliance Crew Members have created several bio-swales as a water management system in the Bronx using native flowers and grasses. Last year, we planted, Dwarf Crested Iris, Autumn Bride Coral Bells, Small Headed Sunflower, and much more in Shoelace Park near 224th Street. Since then, local pollinators have made a ‘bee-line’ for these rain gardens and more instillations are on the way!
