Loaves and Fishes has integrated a series of flow
through planter boxes on two sides of their new building.
The flow through planter boxes receive stormwater runoff from
the building’s roof through a series of disconnected
downspouts. Water is temporarily stored above the soil then
slowly filters down through the planter box. Water that isn’t
absorbed by the soil or plants is collected in a perforated
pipe at the bottom of the planter and routed to a disposal
or conveyance system.
