Three Rivers Rain Garden Alliance
Rain Garden Contest 2013
Sponsored by Three Rivers Rain Garden Alliance
Submission deadline: July 31, 2013
Winners announced September 2013
What are rain gardens?
Rain gardens are bowl-shaped gardens designed to capture and use stormwater that runs off hard surfaces like rooftops, sidewalks, or parking lots. Rain gardens allow the rain to be used where it falls, keep polluted runoff out of our streams, and can lessen flooding downstream. Rain gardens replenish groundwater supply, provide wildlife habitat, and improve the beauty of the landscape.
The contest will highlight some of the best examples of homeowner or professionally installed gardens in Allegheny County. Winners will be chosen in each of 2 categories: residential or community. Gardens will be judged on amount/proportion of stormwater reduction, use of native plants, and originality.
Gardens may be on public or private property, but access to garden for judging may be required.
Gardens must be registered on theRGA website

The Pillow Project's TWENTY EIGHTY-FOUROctober 18, 2012
October 18 - 20, 22, 24 - 28
Doors open at 8pm, Show begins at 8:30pm
w/ Coffeehouse-Style Discussion after the show
Tickets available at ShowClix.
This Fall, The Pillow Project will be re-imagining and reinventing its groundbreaking multimedia performance-installation, TWENTY EIGHTY-FOUR.
Inspired by the anthems of Orwell's seminal novel "1984", juxtaposed by the philosophical work of the late Carl Sagan, The Pillow Project's TWENTY EIGHTY-FOUR is an original full-length production that echoes themes of optimism, pessimism, idealism and realism in our increasingly disconnected modern society.
TWENTY EIGHTY-FOUR previously debuted at The Space Upstairs in the Fall of 2008. This frequently visited theme in The Pillow Project's repertoire explores our feelings about the state of modern society from both a broad societal perspective and an intimate, intensely personal perspective.
After 4 years, and now operating from a completely new concept of dance, this evening-length work, created and directed by Artistic Director Pearlann Porter, explores the modern concepts of being lost in the present, distracted from the future, and conditionally addicted to what we have right here. This project has been supported by The Heinz Endowments
