By BBN Staff: A report from Arkvalley Voice in Colorado, USA notes that students of Saint Benedict’s school in Punta Gorda received a ‘wastewater’ garden from the Salida Sunrise Rotary.
The club completed its first international project in Belize creating a ‘wastewater’ garden to benefit over 250 students.
The project was conducted in collaboration with the Punta Gorda Rotary Club.
The ‘wastewater’ garden is used for filtering wastewater. The wastewater is discharged into septic tanks and then the tanks empty into the garden area. Flowers and other beneficial plants, such as ginger, banana and heliconia, then reuse the water.
The subsurface flow system means that the wastewater is never on the surface, which reduces the possibility of disease transmission.
The clubs gathered over $15,000 through fundraising efforts to complete the project.
Rotary Clubs usually join forces to complete different projects that improve sanitation, health and the environment.
