Outreach and Messaging Strategies for Communities for Rain Garden Projects


Rain Garden Communications Guide by Resource Media



By nature, rain gardens are highly visible community projects.  We have seen in striking ways how they can bring neighborhoods together.  We have also seen how they can cause neighborhood conflicts if planners and coordinators don't take the right steps to seek community support and address concerns up front.  This guide builds on the lessons learned from the projects that received bad press and community push back, as well as the success stories.  It includes best outreach practices, effective messaging and troubleshooting.
