Rain barrels for sale
The Culpeper Soil and Water Conservation District's rain barrel program has been popular since it began in May 2007. CSWCD has held 10 workshops and sold almost 1,000 barrels. Due to an inconsistent supply, the district found a new supplier. These barrels are made in Kentucky by the Earth Minded Company. The new barrels are for sale for $75 each or two for $135.
