World Water Day is March 22, 2021.
We are please to announce that we have teamed up with RainBarrel.ca to help bring awareness and make a change in how we use water. RAIN BARRELS can help save over 1,000 gallons of water, while also reducing your water bills, protecting your yard and water ways.
Rainbarrel.ca reclaims food grade barrels and re-purposes them as rain barrels. Once used to transport fruits and vegetables, they now offer years of reliable service as rain barrels.
One of the biggest advantages of rain barrels is capturing and saving water for later use. It’s also a wonderful way to stretch this precious resource, and keep your carefully cultivated garden lush and beautiful as we head into the warmest months.
You can purchase a rain barrel for $55 and, for every rain barrel sold, $10 goes directly toward supporting local community projects.
There are several colours to choose from as well as several optional accessories. Anyone with a downspout should be able to use one or simply put it in a convenient spot in the garden and attach a hose – you will be able to water the garden without using city water!
Optional home delivery fees are as follows: $10 per barrel or composter, $25 per tank. Delivery of accessories is free when ordered with barrels, composters or tanks.
Our goal is to raise money to give back to the many incredible services in our neighbour as well as continue our very successful youth graffiti clean up crew this summer.
