“Become a River Hero Home to cut down on runoff from rainwater, control runoff of fertilizer, monitor soil erosion, and practice being a good steward of the land and the river.”

David Stokes

David Stokes is a River Hero Home in Lynchburg, VA. Now that he has retired he tries to canoe and fish on the James River whenever he has time. His major garden project that helps the James River is an extensive rain collection system that captures over 1,150 gallons of rainwater from just 1/2″ of rain! That’s a lot of water! David plans on incorporating irrigation into his rain collection system in the future.
