Kansas City's 18Broadway Urban Rain Garden Showcases Sustainability

A corporate-sponsored urban rain garden demonstrates food-growing techniques, renewable energy and stormwater management—all in one square block in downtown Kansas City.

Gardener and DST employee Kathy Pemberton chose food plants based on what is most popular at food agencies. Peppers and tomatoes often top agency wish lists. “We also kept in mind what would be visually appealing from the street,” she says.
