May 23, 2017 – Kawartha Conservation’s 2017 Rain Barrel orders end on Thursday, May 25. Interested residents who have not already ordered their rain barrels or accessories have until Thursday to take advantage of the great pricing offered and finalize their 2017 orders.
All rain barrels and accessories will be ready for pick up on Saturday, June 3 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Kawartha Conservation field centre, next to the administrative centre.
“This is a great opportunity to order rain barrels and accessories at great prices,” said Stewardship Coordinator Holly Shipclark. “People can order 180 litre (47 Gallon) or 220 Litre (55 Gallon) Terracotta rain barrels and a number of accessories from wooden rain barrel stands to downspout diverters, hose and more.”
The annual rain barrel sale benefits Kawartha Conservation while providing area residents with great products at great prices.
With the extreme low water conditions in 2016, more and more people are recognizing the value of rain water harvesting and the cost benefits to using naturally occurring rain water to water lawns and gardens rather than relying on water from the tap.
“Rain barrels are a perfect way to harvest rainwater,” said Ms. Shipclark. “We are certainly seeing more people interested in rain water harvesting opportunities and our 2017 rain barrel sale is a great way to take advantage of that.
