The Dedication of the Rainkeeper in Mrs. Perry's Garden
On Saturday, April 14, the Bristol Garden Club celebrated with the town the culmination of over three years of effort in bringing the Rainkeep to Bristol. The water collecting sculpture is also an artistic rain barrel which will collect and provide water for Mrs. Perry's Garden at Thomas Park in Bristol. The functional sculpture is dedicated to "Our Children: Our Future," emphasizing the importance of utilizing opportunities for water conservation to deal with future environmental challenges. Upcoming educational signage will address the topic of resiliency as it describes the history of the site and its reclamation, and how the Rainkeep functions.
