Helping Conserve Our Natural Resources
Embrace nature's solution to our emerging water shortage, and explore all the opportunities that fresh, soft chemical free water offers.
Harvesting rainwater is a technique which has been used for centuries, but in recent years its relevance has become more pronounced. High water bills, global warming and water restrictions have all made rainwater harvesting more than a nifty gardening skill for those with a green thumb. Because residential irrigation can account for up to 40% of domestic water consumption, water conservation measures such as rain barrels can be used to reduce the demand on the municipal water system or your home‘s personal well. During a storm, even a light one, it doesn’t take much time for a rain barrel to fill with enough water for your lawn and plants to thrive.
We believe the key to conserving and protecting the world's natural resources is research and education. We make it one of our goals to provide as much research, tools and awareness as possible to help conserve our precious resources. We offer FREE water conservation classes along with our rain barrel events to teach people about how to properly install and utilize a rain barrel, general water-saving tips for home or garden, and available rebates citizens can apply for.
