Hey Pumpkin! The leaves are falling, and so is the rain. You can catch some for your garden while supporting SKTL by making your own rain barrel.
A DIY rain barrel is so easy to put together. In fact, Amanda Godwin, SKTL Advisory Board VP, made a video to show you just how easy!
It's also cost effective, especially when you grab one (or more) of the sturdy, 25 gallon containers we're offering for a suggested donation of $15.00 each, or two for $25.00. These upcycled containers were first used by Amtrak for safety testing. They were filled with water and used as crash test dummies. True story!
We've washed and scrubbed them inside and out, but please don't use them for drinking water. Please DO use them for rain barrels or any other project you can think of. We found a bunch of ideas on Pinterest, and would love for you to share your own projects with us on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.
To find out more and get your hands on our crazy cool containers, message Amanda.
