Flood Control Plus Water Conservation (Written by Omelette)
The last few years our school garden has flooded. So this year we will create a French drain so that our school garden will not flood. We will do this by making a trench from one end of the garden to the other and then the trench will go outside of the garden into the field. My friends and I are digging the trench together during the school day and sometimes on the weekends. We are going to make a slope so the water will go to the storage tanks and out of the garden to the field. We are going to put rocks in the trench that will surround a pipe with holes and the rocks will be level with the ground. We will be able to walk on top of the trench.
