County Sustainability Group’s rain barrel sale fundraising returns

March 22, 2024

The County Sustainability Group is once again running a rain barrel sale fundraiser this spring.

Rain barrels, composters, rain tanks, and accessories are available for purchase with proceeds going towards the group’s two bursaries: PECI Student Environmental Award and the County Ecological Farmer Award.

A rain barrel is a container used to catch water flowing from a downspout. Rain barrels reduce the amount of storm water runoff by collecting and storing the rainwater for future use.

There are several benefits of using a rain barrel such as saving money and water, protecting the water supply of the municipality, better gardens (using rain water instead of tap), and reducing the risk of basement flooding.

Online orders are now being accepted at https://rainbarrel.ca/csgpicton/. Please note: all orders must be pre-paid online and includes delivery to your home. Orders are due by April 15 and deliveries will begin the week of Earth Day, April 22.

If you would like more information, contact Don Ross at 613.476.8016 or ecodonross@hotmail.com.
