SAVE WATER AND MONEY!
Building or purchasing a rain barrel is not only helping your wallet on watering bills, but it is also conserving water for dry periods that we experience here in the Southwest! Best of all, rain water is actually better for watering your garden, potted plants, and grass than water from the tap!
Check out the simple Do-It-Youself video on how to build a rainbarrel. Also watch for SCCWS rain barrel building workshops in the spring!
SCCWS Rain Barrel Workshops
SCCWS has held "Build Your Own Rainbarrel Workshops" over the past five years. We have brought workshops to Swift Current and surrounding communities such as Herbert and Shaunavon. We supply all materials and prepare the barrels for you, and with the price at a fraction of buying a pre-made barrel, its easy and fun to do your own!
Get creative with building your own barrel! Add some colour and paint any design, you can even add a rain chain to enjoy during rainy days!
Be sure to watch the SCCWS website, Facebook, and Twitter pages for the next rain barrel building workshop near you!
