A local high school is partnering with rain barrel company to raise funds for after-school initiatives.
St. Joseph's Secondary School and rainbarrel.ca are getting together to host a truckload sale of rain barrels April 17 in the school’s south parking lot from 4 to 6 p.m.
Rain barrels will be sold for $55 each and funds raised will support the school’s eco-team initiatives.
Rain barrels capture and store rain water collected from roofs through downspouts.
They provide chlorine-free and fluoride-free water which is ideal for flowers, vegetables, lawns, shrubs and trees. Rain barrels divert clean water from sewer systems and can provide cost savings for homeowners who currently pay to have water trucked in or who have a water meter installed.
Each rain barrel available is equipped with:
- mosquito and leaf debris filter basket
- overflow hose
- outlet to join rain barrels together in series
- spigot at the bottom which can be connected to a standard garden hose.
They are available in three colours including grey, terracotta and black. All orders must be placed online in advance at www.RainBarrel.ca/SJCSSecoteamfundraiser.
