"That certainly has been the case in Annandale’s Camelot community, which obtained a NEPP grant to install a demonstration rain garden in the median of the main drag, King Arthur Road," she continues. 

The article describes successful NEPP projects - begun by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in 2008 since then funding gardens, paths, picnics, trees, and playgrounds.  One NEPP project in the  Shannon Station neighborhood and its matched $5,000 grant launched a community garden in 2009, hired a garden manager, and still going strong. Camelot shines among these happy, successful communities.
