The Ontario Horticultural Society, through the Ripley and District Horticultural Society, sponsored the construction of a water-harvesting demonstrator at the front gate. Water runs off the gatehouse roof and is directed by an eavestrough around the pergola and into a trough hidden in the bench. The water pump accesses the water which is then used to water the planter and nearby plants, furthering our goal of developing our spaces in a sustainable way.
