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.

The 18Broadway grounds and gardens can process 49,000 gallons of rainwater, and the site can store another 40,000 gallons in underground cisterns. The block’s 89,000-gallon processing capacity is the equivalent of about a 3.5-inch rainfall.
