    “Raindrops are fallin’ on my head…” and our driveway, roof, lawn… Can we keep this rain where it lands and prevents flooding? Better yet, can we use it to prevent our water bills from being so high? The answer is rain barrels and rain gardens! Join Jamie Viebach from The Conservation Foundation as we talk about what to do about rain! Rain barrels allow homeowners to capture the water from their roof, saving money on water bills all summer long. Rain gardens are a beautiful addition to any landscape that can solve problems in wet, low-lying areas where grass and other plants won’t grow or handle runoff from the roof or patio areas. Also included in the presentation will be information on how you can get your yard certified through the Conservation@Home program. 

    Rain barrels are simply large containers that capture stormwater from your roof that would otherwise be lost as runoff. Modern rain barrels are sealed, safe around children and insect resistant – they can even be painted or decorated to your liking. You can divert water from your downspout to fill your rain barrel and a hose spigot on the front makes the water easy to access and use.

    Around 40% of total household water used during the summer months is for watering lawns and gardens. Rainwater doesn’t contain chlorine, lime or calcium which makes it ideal for watering your flowers and vegetable garden or washing your car or windows.

    Join us for a fun evening of shopping along with a presentation from The Conservation Foundation on rain barrels. Come to this class to discover all the ways you can use a rain barrel! For questions or more information, please contact Evilena’s Red Dresser at 815.464.2668.

    The Conservation Foundation sells rain barrels year-round through our partnership with Upcycle Products, Inc. Our 55-gallon rain barrels are made of recycled food-grade plastic, come in a variety of colors and can be purchased online for $60 (plus tax). Home delivery is available for $5 more. Barrels can also be purchased in person at McDonald Farm or area events for $75 (includes tax).
