The benefits of harvesting rainwater are myriad, but good-quality pre-made rain barrels can be pricey. Upstate Forever, in partnership with River Network, is selling 55-gallon rain barrels with retrofit kits for only $40 apiece!
The Rain Barrel Rollout is a campaign to place thousands of rain barrels in communities across the United States, conserving water, saving money, and raising funds for water advocacy organizations.
Pre-order your barrel(s) online at https://www.rivernetwork.org/rn/rainbarrel/, then pick them up on Saturday, May 17, between 9:00 a.m. and noon at McAllister Square in Greenville. Your garden and our rivers will thank you!
