We want to hear about how you’re soaking up the rain! Send us the details of your project and we’ll add it to our website. Please note that by sending us your story and photographs, you are granting us permission to post them on the SOAK website.

Please include: your first name and last initial (and whether you want us to post it), the name of the town where the project took place (or better yet, the address so we can pin it on our map!), and whether or not the practice is visible from the road, and if so, if you would encourage people to drive by and take a look.
